UCI Toolkit – Childrens’ Cycling Education

The Bikeability Trust has partnered with the UCI (worldwide governing body for cycling) on the production of a toolkit that provides practical advice and knowledge for National Cycling Federations around the world seeking to develop their own child cycle training programme.

The toolkit is derived from the UK Bikeability model, and contains practical guidance on creating a programme; alongside advice on creating a rationale and business case for a child cycle training programme.
