Aim of the training
This course is for under-18s who can't ride a bike and if present, the stabilisers will need to be removed for the training. The training goes through stages of safely getting on and off a bike, braking, steering, getting a good balance and pedalling. Most people are able to achieve these by the end of the course, although it's impossible for us to guarantee it. The training will give the rider the skills to go on and practice.
How long does the training last?
We allocate two hours, plus a break.
Are you ready?
Before starting the training, trainees need to have a bike in working condition. If your child's bike has stabilsers, please remove them so we can help your child achieve the balance required.
