Our main objective is that the kids have a load of fun on their bikes, learn some new skills and maybe even a few tricks! It also gives the parents some free time to ride the trails or may be just chill out in the café!
Sessions last 2 hours during term time and include a break where they are provided a drink and snack from the Pedalabikeaway café. They run every Saturday in term time and every Wednesday in the school holidays!
We split our sessions in to 2 main parts;
1.Skill session – focus on core mountain bike skills from effective braking, cornering, body position, line choice, front and rear wheel lifts, manuals and even jumping the bike!
2. Applying the skills on the trails – taking the kids out on the mountain bike trails and putting their new found skills into practice.
We do always need parental help and volunteers are always welcome, especially at the mini races we run for the kids.
They need to be a minimum of 5 years old and need to be able to ride a bike confidently without stabilisers or parental assistance!
A bike! Bikes need to be in full working order, have 2 working brakes and off road tyres. Children need a helmet (complusary) and it is advisable they have a rain jacket, gloves and a water bottle with them.
Yes of course, but the children are your responsibility until the sessions start and we request that you are back at the centre at least 10 minutes before the finish of the club.
The session will go ahead unless we deem it dangerous to do so. This will only occur in extreme temperatures or in the case of high winds/gales.
Yes you can. Anyone taking part in the session will receive a 10% discount on bike hire.
