Cycle lessons for children

Riding with stabilisers?

Need help getting a child onto two wheels? Individual lessons soon get them riding confidently but a group Beginner Biking lesson will be cheaper for you parents. Contact your local Children's Centre to find out if they are running any sessions.

Want your child to learn about cycling on the road before they do it!

Level 1 - From age 5, these lessons take place off road and cover basic cycle control skills including starting, stopping, fine control, looking and signalling. It will also cover basic road positioning and simulate simple manouvers. I will also introduce the concept of 'right of way' and highway code for cyclists.

Level 2 - From 9 years old (school year 4). Lessons take place on quiet local roads such as housing estates and other similar roads with low traffic volumes. Sessions will cover the main manoeuvres needed when cycling on these roads including passing side roads and parked cars, turning left and right into and out of side roads and U-turns.

You have a confident child cyclist who is starting secondary school and needs to venture furthur afield?

Level 3 - From 11 years old (school year 7). This course assumes a pass at level 2 otherwise the level 2 skills must be included as part of this course. In this course more complex and busy road situations will be covered. These will include multi lane roads, traffic lights and roundabouts both large and small. Local road features such as traffic calming and other specifics will be covered. This course will also include route planning between places chosen by the children and will include such routes as home to school, home to swimming pool or town centre etc.

Special Educational Needs

If your child has some form of special educational need be it dyspraxia, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, ADHD or other issues please make sure that the instructor is aware of the problem before the lesson commences.

We have successfully taught children with such conditions but do need to know in advance because lessons may need to be modified to suit your child.
