Confidence-builder classes for those already pedalling

Has your child learned to cycle (without stabilisers) but would like to improve their skills and confidence? 

Our CycleKids Plus sessions are designed to give children the chance to practice their pedalling in a safe, obstacle-free environment with input from a cycling instructor. Through a variety of fun challenges & games, children also have the chance to learn some slightly more advanced cycling skills. 

 

The small group setting means your child gets lots of input from your cycling instructor, helping them improve not only their skills but their overall cycling confidence. Your instructor will adapt the session to meet the needs of the children in the class.
