Session Plan (sessions run all year round in all weathers, except in very high winds)
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.
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 with and skip the stabiliser stage!
