Requirements: Riders do not require any previous experience riding or pedalling in order to attend this course. The session is aimed at non-riders who cannot yet pedal their bikes or are unconfident doing so.
Description: This is a beginner’s activity for children who cannot yet pedal a bike who would like to learn how to ride, gain confidence and understand the basics of cycling. This will include getting on and off the cycle safely, to bike handling and balancing skills. The sessions are delivered in a traffic free environment and will be delivered by qualified cycle instructors.

Weather: Please bring weather appropriate clothing to the session. We encourage gloves/warm jackets that can be zipped up for cold weather and waterproof clothing in case it rains. For sunny days please bring sun protection e.g. sunscreen and light layers as well as plenty of water. Please note due to the nature of these sessions they will be weather dependant and should the winds/rain be very strong on the day causing a hazard coaches will decide whether or not the session is safe to go ahead. If coaches judge the weather to be unsafe to ride in, parents will be informed a minimum of 2 hours before if this is the case and payment can be re-used for another course or refunded.
