One of the key focuses of our Active Travel team is that of Pedestrian Training, under the tenets of Stop, Look, Listen, Think. Pedestrian training is an essential part of young children’s lives: It teaches them how to respect the road and cross it safely. It teaches them how to properly monitor the road to check for a safe crossing, how to maintain their visibility so that drivers can see them and how to properly cross the road.

Our Active Travel team deliver pedestrian training sessions across the Tees Valley, and have been doing so for many years alongside Bikeability. As such, they are highly qualified leaders in delivering pedestrian training and help to teach children how to safely cross the road . For more information on Bikeability for schools, please enquire with Margaret Tonkin at margaret.tonkin@menvcity.org.uk, or call us on 01542 579820.

Our Active Travel team deliver Bikeability training to Primary Schools across the Tees Valley. Bikeability, overseen by the Bikeability Trust, is the Department for Transport’s flagship national cycle training programme for schoolchildren across England and is a practical, framework-driven training system designed to develop the skills of children, as well as their confidence, to allow them to cycle safely. In doing so, it improves their health and also works towards the reduction of carbon emissions from cars.

Bikeability focuses on all levels of riders, from children who are just starting on their cycling journey to more experienced riders, and teaches a mastery of basic skills as well as other skills including safety checks, communicating with other road users and suitable ride positions, amongst other things.

Our Active Travel team are trained to exacting standards to teach Bikeability, and are certified by 1st 4 Sport for Instructing Cycle Training, some of the first in the country to be certified to this standard which will become mandatory for teaching Bikeability in March 2024.

Our Active Travel team deliver Bikeability sessions to dozens of kids a day, to many different schools, and have been doing so for several years. As such, they are highly qualified leaders in Bikeability training and are more than capable of delivering the training safely and effectively. For more information on Bikeability for schools, please enquire with Margaret Tonkin at margaret.tonkin@menvcity.org.uk, or call us on 01642 579820.

Redcar Active Travel Hub is a mobile service that delivers Active Travel Projects in and around the borough.

The service is in place to assist people to make steps towards leading a healthier life style.
