Children's Cycling Activities

We provide a comprehensive programme of activities from balance bike and learn to ride courses to after school clubs and Bikeability training. We want to make it easy for you to establish active travel as a normal and regular way of getting around for your groups.

Bikeability Cycle Training

More people cycling, more safely, more often. 

Bikeability is the modern version of the cycle proficency training programme. School children gain practical skills and understanding of how to cycle on today’s roads. There are three Bikeability cycle training levels taking trainees from the basics of balance and control off-road, all the way to planning and making an independent journey on busier roads. 

Please visit our Bikeability web page for more information on our school training. 

 

Balance First

Balance bike training offers a great introduction to cycling, developing the essential skills of balance and coordination needed to ride. 

Delivered on balance bikes (specific bikes without pedals), the game-based sessions focus on encouraging children in early years to push and glide. Our instructors are creative and use imaginative games to build lots of enthusiasm on two wheels. The progression from balance bikes to pedal cycling becomes easier once trainees have mastered the art of balancing on a bike.

Bike Club

Bike Club is design to develop a lifelong love for cycling amongst all participants. Targeted at KS2 pupils, the sessions demonstrate to pupils, what can be achieved on a bike through fun and inspiring activities. 

Our 5 session club includes bike handling games, grass track racing, bike maintenance challenges and much more.

Bike Club can be run during or after school as well as in school holidays or holiday camps. For more information, please get in touch

Scootability

Scooter Training aims to promote the use of scooters as a fun, active and easy way to make simple journeys on the pavement.

Targeted at children in school years 2-6, the session will cover handling skills, pavement etiquette and the green cross code through a variety of enjoyable games. 

Please get in touch to find out more about how we can help promote active travel. 

Bike Maintenance Training

We run bike maintenance training sessions for children in KS2 with our qualified, experienced and friendly mechanics. We aim to build pupils' confidence looking after their own bikes, enabling them to make simple adjustments and repairs.

Our bike maintenance sessions are delivered over two sessions. During the course, children will learn how to fix a puncture / change an inner tube, adjust their saddle height, adjust their gears and carry out basic brake adjustment.

Please get in touch to find out how we can upskill your pupils. 

Learn to Ride Training

Everyone remembers the first time they learnt to ride and we ensure this starts a lifelong love of cycling.

Aimed at pupils who are unable to cycle, the sessions motivate trainees to master the skills of balance, control and pedalling. Whether children are trying for the first time or older children are after additonal guidance, we provide fun and supportive steps to help trainees discover the joy of cycling on two wheels. 

Please get in touch to find out how we can help. 

Dr Bike

We run Dr Bike sessions in schools and for community events. They are a great way to reward anyone who cycles in and encourages people to take an interest in their bikes, ensuring it is always working to its best potential. We always bring in an element of teaching in to our sessions, giving invaluable tips on ways to look after your bike.

We have experience of looking after pool bikes and for schools, running Dr Bike session prior to Bikeability training. For more information please get in touch.

The fantastic team taught me more than I have ever dreamt to know in just a few days; knowledgeable, friendly, patient, supportive, they made me feel confident enough on day 1 and I left with a huge sense of achievement. I can only recommend Outspoken. They are great!
