Cyclist Activity Badge

How to earn your badge

  1. Find out why it’s important to wear safety equipment like a helmet, reflective clothing and lights
  2. Show how to put on and wear a cycle helmet correctly
  3. Show how to pump up a tyre
  4. Go for a short ride in a safe place

! You must always wear a cycle helmet when riding your bike. The only exception is if you’re Sikh and you wear a turban.


Guidance for leaders

While working towards this badge, Beavers could explore reflective materials using this Be Seen Be Safe activity, which can contribute to a CREST Star Award.   Find out more about the CREST awards here. 


Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
