Tuesday 2nd August 2022

Perfect for children who have just started to ride or are currently learning and feel a little nervous or wobbly on a bike.

Cycling is a great way to move more and get active whilst reducing transport costs and environmental impact. Whether you’ve been referred to us or you are just keen to get out there and get active then we are here to help. 

In these sessions we will teach the following skills: (subject to timing and current ability)  

  • Understanding safety and equipment including helmets  
  • Carry out a simple bike check  
  • Pedal without help and stop without help 
  • Steer the bike properly and make it go where you want  
  • Brake properly and smoothly, without skidding  
  • Look all around while cycling  
  • Control the bike with one hand  
  • Cycle with consideration for others including vulnerable pedestrians, dogs, etc  
  • React safely to emergencies and maintain control of the bike  


If possible please bring your own bike and helmet, however, if needed please let us know when booking so we can arrange for you to borrow one. Please include the age and height of the rider so we can make sure we have an appropriate bike available. We have limited numbers of bikes and  booking is on a first come first served basis.

You will need to meet your instructor at Bournville Park at the tennis courts. 

This class is for children, aged 4-12, who want to  improve their confidence and bike handling skills. Children learn differently and some take longer than others, you may need to attend more than one session to complete the whole course. Each session is 1.5 hours long.
