Bike Club inspires KS2 children to cycle with a variety of energetic and engaging activities over five weeks. Run entirely off road for all abilities, the series of fun, one hour sessions cater for up to 12 pupils and activities include bike handling games, an interactive bike maintenance lesson, grass track racing and much more. The aim is to demonstrate how fun and accessible cycling is whilst equipping pupils with the skills to cycle more.
Bikeability Level 1 course
The Bikeability Level 1 cycling programme is perfect for children in years 3 and 4 and we run this through a two hour session for up to 20 pupils per group. The focus is to develop bike handling skills including being able to ride one-handed, looking behind while cycling in a straight line and good bike control. There are clear outcomes that we have to work to and the improvements are measurable during the course. All these skills are developed using a variety of games and the children really enjoy the sessions.
Our scooter training is delivered in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. We aim to encouraging an active journey to school whilst promoting consideration to other people using the same paths. We do this by using a variety of fun, exciting games designed to improve pupils’ handling and awareness skills. We deliver this all in a one hour session for up to 15 pupils.
Balance First is an exciting and active five week programme, specifically designed to get reception year children enjoying and developing the important life skill of cycling. The 40 minute weekly sessions focus on developing motor skills to improve balance, agility and coordination and we can coach up to 10 pupils per group. We provide helmets and balance bikes which have no pedals to achieve this and aim to give children the confidence to cycle and control their bike effectively. The course caters for all abilities including pupils with no experience of riding a bike and those who can already ride.
Bike Maintenance Training
Our bike maintenance courses are really popular with youth groups and school children. We run fully accredited structured six week courses as well as one-off taster sessions to ensure children learn to really understand their bike as well as pick up essential life skills, build self-esteem and gain better dexterity with their hands.

We work with many secondary schools to offer Level 3 training and to help build confidence to get children cycling to school on a regular basis. We work on very small ratios and look at individual routes to/from home or school. Level 3 training is usually fully funded by central government.
