CTL supports the DfTs aims to ensure that more children and families are given the opportunities, skills, support and guidance they need to make cycling part
of their everyday life. Bikeability Plus is a series of 10 modules designed to complement and enhance the effectiveness of Bikeability Levels 1,2,3.
Every CTL instructor is contracted and receives weekly professional development and ongoing assessments to ensure coaching delivery is consistently to the highest standard.

increase cycling awareness. This partnership approach is fundamental
