  • Activities for toddlers (songs, crayoning and maybe a bit of balance biking….)
  • Advice and support for expectant parents about cycling in London
  • Advice and support for families about pretty much anything and everything cycling related

PS Our Wednesday and Thursday Sessions operating as normal but with changed times (and an extra Thursday session!) 

Yay! Abney Park Open Day this afternoon

As part of the wheelytots.com/ride programme we will be at Abney Park N16 1AU between 12-4pm.  The aim is to provide familes with cycling advice from pre natal to age 4!  We’ll have some drawing activities, free fruit (until it runs out!), some giveaways and if you’re between ages 2-4 see if your parents will let you have a go on a balance bike and  enter our competition to win a place at a free family bike maintenance workshop!!

We’ll also have some balance bikes for sale and take orders if you’d like to buy a new one!  All proceeds go to Wheely Tots, a registered charity that believes all children should learn to be healthy , confident and resilient.  We do this by helping families bond and do cycling related stuff together which generally helps put a positive spin (pun probably intended) on things.

All weather sessions are great – especially on wintery days!

Big thanks to Earlyna who volunteered with Wheely Tots 10 am Finsbury park session today!

Outdoors wintery volunteering is great!

Outdoors wintery volunteering is great!

Earlyna developed a new way of stacking the balance bikes more efficiently into our cargo bike (brilliant!) and we taught her our trick of remembering multiple childrens names!

Earlyna said “It was amazing to see the parents and toddlers get stuck in and the enthusiasm on Emil’s face when he arrived made my day!”

And a big thanks to Emil’s mum for taking the photo!
