service costs

Hello Ruth,
We currently provide Bikeability Cycle Training free of charge as we have managed to draw down a grant from Cycling England. We used to offer our own vesion of Cycle Training (levels 1,2&3) which was charged at 3.50 per pupil for the Level 1 and 5 per pupil for Levels 2 & 3.

Our other programmes such as classroom based education and practical Pedestrian Skills Training are currently also provided free of charge.

The only services which we currently charge for are our 'Family cycle Training' sessions which cost 10 + VAT for approximately half a day's training and our 'Bike Buddy Service' which is currently offered to adults who can ride a bike, but perhaps just want a bit of a 'confidence' boost or help planning a route. We offer a 'buddy' who will cycle to (or from) work with them and provide tips and advice. The service costs 10 + VAT.

Obviously this is only the current state of affairs, and we may well have to look to change this in the future. It may be a matter of start to charge for services or withdraw them, but I guess that would be a worst case scenario.

Hello Ruth

Have a look at:

We also provide Road Safety professional development courses for partners and volunteers through the Devon Road Safety Academy and prices are dependent on the course. Too many to go into here and it's a sliding scale depending on where, how many etc. Let me know if you need to know more.
