How to earn your badge
- Find out why it’s important to wear safety equipment like a helmet, reflective clothing and lights
- Show how to put on and wear a cycle helmet correctly
- Show how to pump up a tyre
- 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.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
