All our outdoor activities have limited numbers and need to be pre booked online to ensure you, our staff, and the public are protected from Coronavirus.
Before attending an outdoor session, you need to either:
- attend a free pre-session information call with our team. These sessions occur on Thursday mornings, they are aimed at parents/carers but your little ones are welcome to join with you!
- Listen to a podcast with pre-session information (6 minutes)

Outdoor Session details
Suggested donation of £10 per child and £5 for any siblings very gratefully received. This supports our wider charitable activities.
We are running family cycling sessions as part of Haringey Council’s Summer Holiday activities from Monday 20 July 2020. You need to bring your own bikes or attend an online session first and we can provide you with a suitable bike for the session.
Numbers are limited so you need to book in advance using the buttons below.
WARM CLOTHES (top and bottom for yourself and your toddler) AND RAIN GEAR even if the weather looks good!
WATER AND SNACKS (eg Fruit)!
Your little one must;
- wear a properly fitting helmet. (If you need one let us know and we can help you purchase)
- use your own balance, child or adult bike. If you need a bike complete our fitting form and we can help you get one from our kit library.
Session Plan (sessions run all year round in all weathers, except in extremely high winds, rain and cold are brilliant, honest!)
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! Older learner riders also welcome !
Photos of pre lockdown sessions here. 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!
