About this event

Sessions are 60 minutes long. For most riders, one lesson is sufficient enough but If you don’t have the balance, you might need two sessions to grasp all the basics. Our sessions follow a simple process in which you will start on a small bike that is suitable for beginners. We then start to glide which helps develop balance, with the help of a gentle slope! We then extend the distance of the glide as you get more and more confident, at this stage we will introduce ‘easy steering’. After you have mastered gliding and steering, we will add braking. You will then progress onto a bike with pedals, continuing to practice and introduce use of the pedals whilst gliding. At this point you will be very close to riding. Once you are riding, steering and braking we will add some cones to practice turning and the final element will be to set off from a stationary position. We can progress these skills in the second sessions if required depending on how quickly you learn, we aim to master all the basics in their first hour! All bikes and helmet provided, these sessions are outside so please dress appropriately. Please report to the reception to let us know you are here. You will then be directed to the cycling circuit where your coach will get the right starting bike for you. If you wish, you can bring your own bike and helmet as that is the bike you will use to ride on.
