Children’s Learn to Ride

This class is for children who cannot yet pedal without help or without stabilisers.

Our aim of the course is to get participants pedalling without assistance and experience the fun and enjoyment of moving on two wheels.

We will teach the following skills:

– understanding safety equipment and clothing including helmet

– carry out a simple bike check

– get on and off the bike without help

– pedal without help and stop without help

All ages are welcome, we normally recommend from the age of 4 upwards. We aim for a ratio of one instructor to three / four learners.
