    The Free* Family Cycle Training course
    is a
    3-day course of 2-hour daily sessions.

    This course is offered during school holidays.

    Our next course takes place on the following date:

    Tuesday 28th, Thursday 30th and Friday 31st May.

    Families can choose either a morning or afternoon time slot:

    The morning course sessions are 10:00 – 12:00
    The afternoon course sessions are 12:30 – 14:30

    This is a bespoke course for families of maximum 3 beginners or 6 improvers per family.

    1 family per instructor. 


    The course is focused on your family’s needs and expectations. At the beginning of the course, you will discuss with your instructor what you are looking to achieve during the course and be assessed in the park.

    Day 1: In the park

    • Your instructor will teach a light version of the bikeability syllabus: control skills & how to snake together in the park, preparing you to cycle safely on quiet roads on day 2 as a group.

    Day 2 & Day 3: You have a few options, depending on your level: 

    • Cycle rides to discover new parks and quiet roads
    • Light cycle training to progress the whole family to a level 2, giving you the skills needed to cycle on-road safely at the end of the course.
    • Practicing routes from home to school and back
