Cycle Skills training
Every second Saturday of the month, April to October 2024, we will be offering a free range of Cycle Skills training for residents' families. From children learning to balance and those learning to ride for the first time, to adults (16+) wanting to enhance their cycle skills or gain confidence on the road.
All sessions are free of charge and there is no need to book, however, due to limited space we must operate on a first come first served basis.
- As the sessions take place outdoors, they are weather dependant, please check this web page for any updates before attending.
- You can attend individually or as a family.
- Bringing your own helmets, bikes and balance bikes, is advised, but we will also have a limited amount available to use, free of charge.
- All applicants aged 4 to 17-years-old will need to be accompanied by an adult on their training sessions.
For more information, email Darryl Boot at firstname.lastname@example.org.
