The Savoir Rouler à Vélo (SRAV) program

What is SRAV?

The “Savoir Rouler à Vélo” (Knowing how to ride a bike) program has been introduced by the French government and is part of school curricula, enabling children aged 6 to 11 to learn the skills they need to be independent cyclists by the time they start secondary school.
