LEARN TO CYCLE COURSES
We are very proud of our pathway that has seen hundreds of children gain the confidence and skills to enjoy their bikes safely. Delivered in a fun, stimulating learning environment our focus is always on your child's development and enjoyment of being on a bike!
LEVEL 1- BALANCE BIKE BEGINNERS is for children aged 2- 4 and is delivered in blocks of 5 sessions. The aim for children in this group is to have fun and gain confidence learning the fundamental skills of cycling using balance bikes as well as developing key motor skills including balance, co-ordination and spatial awareness. Once children can successfully ride a balance bike by lifting their feet up to balance and steer the bike they are then ready to move onto our level 2 course to learn how to use pedals.
Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Balance bikes provided or use your own.
LEVEL 2- TRANSITION TO PEDALS is a 6 week course for children aged 4- 7 and continues the development of gross motor skills and dynamic balance. The main goal is for children to make the transition from balance bike to riding their own pedal bike confidently and safely.
Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Balance bikes provided for the first 3 weeks, children older than 6 please bring a bike with pedals removed to use for this stage, own bikes required week 4 or as advised by coach.
LEVEL 3- WHEELERS IN MOTION is the final stage of your child's Mini Wheelers journey as this 4 week course is specifically designed for children who have recently learnt to ride a bike independently. The aim is for children to gain confidence and have fun on their bike whilst improving key riding skills including setting off, handling, braking and cornering, giving you piece of mind that your child will be safe to cycle to school, in parks and off road cycle paths.
Q: DO I NEED TO BRING A BIKE? Yes own bikes required at all sessions.
*Please bring your child's own bike helmet to use we are always happy to supply these and must be worn to take part in all sessions.
We are passionate about rewarding hard work and progress which is why each week rewards are given out for riders chosen as Mini Wheelers of the week. This includes the chance for our Balance Bike Beginners to take home and look after the Mini Wheelers Bear.
On completion of their course every child will receive a certificate of achievement.
