Learn to Ride – Confidence Booster Sessions – School Years 3-5 (3 day course)

Requirements: These sessions are aimed at riders who can pedal independently but lack confidence in cornering, controlling their speed and stopping with control.

Description: This is a beginner’s activity for children who can pedal their bikes independently but lack confidence when cornering, controlling their speed and stopping with control. This course aims to boost riders’ confidence and control including looking behind and taking their hands off the handlebars. Please be aware the Bikeability Level 1 course is a separate programme. The sessions are delivered in a traffic free environment and will be delivered by qualified cycle instructors.

Things to bring: A roadworthy bike, 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 chloe.bougourd@jerseysport.je 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.

Please note that whilst we are teaching in a public area, we ask parents not to film or take pictures of the children whilst they are in session.
As a parent or guardian, you are welcome to stay and observe but we respectfully ask that you do not enter the teaching area during the session.
