Our ‘Learn to Balance and Ride’ classes are open to children aged 3-12 years old.
Learn to Balance and Ride classes focus on developing childrens' ability to balance before teaching them to pedal. Children begin by learning to ride a ‘balance bike’ – a bike with no pedals and a lower centre of gravity than a typical pedal bike – and build their confidence staying upright on two wheels. From there we transition the children onto pedal bikes with great success!
A fun and supportive atmosphere is encouraged by our instructors during these group classes, and parents/guardians are encouraged to stay, watch and support.
How much do the classes cost? We have obtained funding and support from some of the local authorities that we work with. Many classes are subsidised and some are completely free.

Are your classes suitable for children with additional learning needs? We aim to make our cycling classes inclusive for all children and our fully trained instructors will be able to give children extra focus when needed. Learning the control, balance and co-ordination that is needed to cycle can be enormously beneficial – not to mention enjoyable!
