The Department for Transport has allocated £12.8 million to the Bikeability cycle training programme for the year 2019/20 and delivered more than 400,000 training places to schoolchildren in 2017/18. The programme has recently secured a sponsorship deal with Halfords which has generated an additional £1 million for training places and free bike safety checks for every child participating in Bikeability.
