Bikelife Whole School Programmes

Bikelife is a unique programme for schools that equips pupils, families and school staff with the skills and enthusiasm to cycle more.

At the same time, Bikelife helps develop the health and fitness of children and families as well as assisting schools to reduce congestion outside the school gates and improve air quality.

What is Bikelife?

Bikelife can be either a year-long or term-long cycling programme delivered in schools by Outspoken Training’s instructors. All of our instructors are qualified and accredited by the Department for Transport and have been appropriately vetted including an enhanced DBS check. 

Each Bikelife programme increases the amount of cycling to and from school through cycle training, games, activities and workshops. 

On average we engage with over 1,200 pupils, parents/guardians and school staff in five local schools per project. 

Bikelife Activities

To upskill and enthuse more people to cycle, we offer a wide range of fun activities including:

  • Cycle try out show launch

  • Balance bike training

  • Learn to ride training

  • Bike maintenance training

  • Led rides

  • Gate duties

  • School competitions

How is Bikelife funded?

Bikelife is funded through grants and sponsorship. Businesses, Local Authorities (LAs) and Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) work in partnership with schools to deliver the programme, making it an integral part of their corporate and social responsibility, marketing and PR or community outreach plans. 

Sponsors’ brands are associated with the project, enabling them to reach and engage with parents, staff and pupils on a personal level and supports government targets for reducing congestion and improving air quality.
