Table 2 Associations between whether the school offered Bikeability and children’s cycling behaviour across the study population (N = 3336)

From: Impact of offering cycle training in schools upon cycling behaviour: a natural experimental study

  1. All p ≥ 0.4 for association. Analyses based on our study population of 3336 children, of whom 773 were in the control group and 2563 in the intervention group. Adjusted analyses adjusted for all variables shown in Table 1 (with the local prevalence of cycling to work entered as a continuous variable), and also for the region of England that the child lived in and the season of data collection
  2. CI confidence interval
  3. a Defined as ever making local, non-school bicycle trips without an adult, either on their own or with other children
