What should they wear?

Children should attend in season-appropriate leisure wear. Please avoid baggy clothing as this increases the chances of entanglement.

We don’t generally ask for parental participation as this sometimes confuses and distracts the child. We do, however, ask that parents stay on-site and on hand.

How are your classes split?

To ensure the best possible experience, our sessions are split into 3 ‘Stages’ dependent on the child’s ability. (Please see classes page for more detail)

How serious is the coaching element?

We take our coaching seriously but ensure all of our sessions are fun and enjoyable. Our sessions are progressive and challenging and aim to get the best out of our Little Wheelers.

As your child progresses and their bike handling improves, we begin to focus on group riding and fitness.
