Cycle Training for Children

Learning to ride in the community

Half term Learn to Ride sessions

Our Beginners Learn to Ride sessions are fun, relaxed lessons for children who'd like to learn how to ride their bike without stabilisers. This session is for those who can't ride at all or who are still very wobbly when trying to ride without support.

Open to ages 5 years and upwards, group sizes will be kept small, so everyone gets the maximum benefit from the session. (Please be aware though, there will be up to a maximum of 3 children per instructor, these aren't one to one lessons).

You can bring along your child's pedal bike (without stabilisers), but helmets, balance bikes and lots of spare bikes will be available for all to use. 

It's up to you whether you stay at the session or not. From past experience however, we find that children tend to make much better progress when parents don't stay.

Cost: FREE

Session length: 1 hour 

Venue: See below

A few days before the event, you will receive an information email with all the details you'll need for the day. Please feel free to contact us in the meantime with any questions -
