After School Clubs
Cycling is an exciting alternative to traditional provision for after school clubs providing the opportunity for skill development for all ages through games in the traffic free environment of the playground. We can also arrange trips to local skills tracks, centres or natural trails.
Provision for all ages, abilities and aspirations
Our Balance Bike and learn to ride sessions are popular provision and particularly suitable for early years and KS1 groups. We offer KS2 and KS3 children exciting opportunities to experience Mountain Bike rides and coaching that can include bike maintenance. Our instructors have extensive experience of working with children with additional needs ensuring our activities are inclusive to most pupils. The sense of achievement created within a child who learns to ride or completes a challenging ride is hard to beat.
