** Lockdown update **
Unfortunately we are not able to run our courses under the current lockdown restrictions.
If you have a booking on a course due to start in January, we be in touch shortly over email, with details of how to postpone your booking to a later course for no charge.
We were able to run our courses under the old tier 3 restrictions so we hope to be able to restart as soon as restrictions are eased.
All courses from mid-February remain open for booking and we have courses available up to the Easter holidays. If we have to cancel subsequent courses we will postpone all bookings for no charge.
We guarantee to get your child cycling!
Here’s how our guarantee works…
You book your child or children on to a course of 3 one hour sessions. We usually find that 3 sessions is enough to get your child riding safely. However if they haven’t quite got there after 3 sessions, we offer extra sessions for no extra charge until they’ve cracked it!
We teach in small groups of no more than 8 and use a variety of games to help the children learn balance and control.
We only use Islabikes — the best children’s bikes on the market. They are lightweight and all components are scaled down in size. The brakes in particular are excellently designed, effective and easy to use.
At the course all the children learn on our bikes, but it is essential that they have a suitable bike to practise on in the days and weeks immediately after they learn to cycle. If you do not yet have a bike for your child, please read our advice on bike buying here. We can also advise you about bikes after the end of the first session of the course.
The helmets we use at the course are made by Swiss brand TSG and we think they are the safest around. They sit lower on the child's head, covering their forehead and temples well. They are also lightweight so the don't fall back on the child's head like many helmets tend to.
We provide the helmets at the course (with a new hairnet for each child for COVID-19 purposes). The TSG helmets will be available to buy new after the third session of the course, in all the different sizes.
All our fully qualified instructors are DBS checked and first aid trained.
