Mini Wheelers was founded in 2016 and since then our passion has been to help children become safe and confident on two wheels!
Our structured lessons use modern teaching methods and balance bikes making learning to cycle with stabilisers a thing of the past as well as providing an experience they will remember forever, as the saying goes once you learn to ride a bike, you never forget!
"Mini Wheelers is fab, my daughter learnt to ride with them and gave her confidence in herself and in such a friendly atmosphere." -Mini Wheelers parent
Andy has over 10 years experience working with children and young adults in sport. After graduating with a degree in sport and exercise science in 2011 he went on to gain a PGCE whilst teaching within secondary schools in Doncaster.
In 2015 Andy left the field of education to take up a role as a community cycling coordinator to encourage more people in Doncaster to cycle as well as training young people in cycle safety. Andy also did some media work with professional cyclist Adam Yates of Team Mitchelton Scott to promote the Yorkshire bank Bike Libraries project-which was on YouTube the last time we checked :)
It was in this role he discovered the need for cycle training for younger children having come across an alarming number of children aged 6+ stuck on stabilisers including his niece at the time (first guinea pig). With great dertermination to change this Mini Wheelers was born! 💥
Andy is a qualified National standards cycling instructor who has previously worked in primary schools to deliver the government-recognised Bikeability programme to teach children the skills to cycle safely and confidently on the road, thus giving him a broad range of knowledge of cycle training for all ages to share with you as well as his own experiences as a cyclist.
Away from coaching and growing the Mini Wheelers brand, Andy is a father of two to Evie and Archie and enjoys spending time with his family and friends as well as playing a variety of different sports.
Now you know about our journey. It’s time to start your child’s journey into the world of cycling with the best coaching and support around!
