We will be back at Lordship Rec for Easter 2020 (from Monday 6th April to Thursday 9th April).
10am – 4pm at Lordship Rec, Walploe Road, N17 6BD in the Model Traffic Area.
See map here for exact location.
We’re running parent & toddler balance bike sessions through the day starting at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
For toddlers aged 2ish – 4ish (toddlers to have minimum inside leg length 30cm and able to walk confidently)

Our Easter 2019 sessions were brilliant, almost 100 families joined in.
This is all happening courtesy of funding from Transport for London’s Walking and Cycling Grants London and we’re super appreciative of their support for our family cycling activities.
We’re hoping you will try a session each day or multiple sessions in a single day and we can see how a more intensive approach works in practice.
WARM CLOTHES (top and bottom) AND RAIN GEAR EVEN IF THE WEATHER LOOKS GOOD!
WATER AND SNACKS (eg fruit) FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE!
Your little one must wear a properly fitting helmet (bring your own or you can purchase one from us). Balance bikes provided, or you can bring your own.
Session Plan (sessions run in all weathers)
10mins – parent led bike, helmet adjustment, introductions and warm up
25mins – activity ranging from drawing with chalks, playing/cycling with multi coloured cones, I spy, singing songs, collecting bits of nature and generally having a short walk
10mins – opportunity to warm down relax, exchange information, socialise and top up with water & snacks!
Sessions are aimed at toddlers aged 2-4 but if your little one can walk and has an inside leg of 30cm they can happily participate from 18months!
We deliberately have a big age range so littler ones can learn from bigger ones (and vice versa!) and siblings can be in the same sessions.
Professional bike mechanics, cycling instructors, cycling coaches, parents and child development gurus have devised sessions by applying literally every bit of their expertise to makes sessions inclusive, interactive, fun, friendly and a great way to positively reinforce all sorts of things!
We can access lots of lovely wide paths, exciting flora & fauna, pavements and superb locations to learn new things, meet other parents and see your little ones really enjoy themselves and develop really useful skills.
Cycling at an early age means children effortlessly move straight onto a pedal bike and skip the stabiliser stage!
