Requirements: Riders do not require any previous experience riding or pedalling to attend this course. The session is aimed at non-riders who cannot yet pedal their bikes or are extremely unconfident doing so. If your child is already pedalling independently this course will not be appropriate for them to attend.
Description: This is a beginner’s activity for children who cannot yet pedal a bike in school years 1 and 2 who would like to learn how to ride a bike for the first time, 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.
Things to bring: A roadworthy bike (please remove any stabilisers), a helmet that fits correctly and is free from cracks, water bottle, snack. Suitable clothing (loose items like skirts, baggy trousers and unzipped jackets are not suitable for cycling).
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 the session is safe to go ahead. If the coaches judge the weather to be unsafe to ride in, parents will be informed a minimum of 2 hours before.
We highly encourage you to bring your own bike if you have access to one. However, Jersey sport have a small fleet of bikes and helmets available for loan upon prior request on a first come first serve basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s height (cm), inside leg length (cm) and the dates/course your child will be attending If you would like to arrange the loan of a bike / helmet for one of our courses.
