** Courses restarting from 12 April! **
The government has described its roadmap out of lockdown and we are able to restart our courses in Step 2 of this plan.
The earliest that the country will reach Step 2 is 12 April so we have courses available to book from this date. For our Camden and Mill Hill venues we are finalising dates and hope to have courses available to book by 5 March.
Depending on what happens with COVID-19 cases in the next few weeks, it is possible that the 12 April roadmap date will not be met, in which case we will postpone all affected bookings for no charge. But we are hopeful that we'll restart in April and look forward to getting more children cycling then!
If you had a booking on a course due to start before 12 April or on a course cancelled in lockdown, we have emailed you with details of how to rebook 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 they 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.
