About – Introducing kids to the joy of cycling and educating them about bike safety and feeling comfortable to ride. It includes the foundations of cycling which includes the essential skills. It will help them develop a positive, safe, and active habit.
For who? We offer two sessions for kids, one for 7-12 years (15:00-16:15) and the other for 13+ years (16:30-17:45). Children should be able to cycle on their own (with or without stabilising wheels). Please note they will need to bring their own bikes & helmets.
Type of bicycles: Kids bikes (incl. mountain bikes, BMX, trail bikes) *if you only have a road bike let us know and we can tailor the session for you.
