Wheely Tots & COVID-19

This page was last updated 30/03/20

As of 23rd March, we’ve cancelled all of our weekly toddler sessions until further notice, and won’t be running our Easter sessions in Lordship Rec. We’ve also cancelled our Saturday and Easter sessions for Your Bike Project.

We’re following UK government advice and NHS guidance around COVID-19. The safety and wellbeing of our wider community, session leaders and admin team are our biggest priority.  

We recognise the huge benefits of physical activity and being outdoors on our overall health, particularly at the moment. We’ve been adapting our offer so that we can continue to support families to access cycling safely. 

As a grassroots charity with five years’ worth of strong connections across our local community, we’re committed to  helping those most in need during this extremely difficult period. 

During the lockdown period, here’s what we’re offering:

Online consultations

Book a twenty-minute online consultation with one of our expert bike mechanics or cycle instructors. We can help on anything from sourcing parts and tools, diagnosing mechanical issues, route planning, choosing the right bike, and any other cycle-related quandary. Free to NHS / key workers. 

Kit Library home deliveries

We’re doing home deliveries of balance bikes from our kit library. For more information click here, or contact info@wheelytots.com  To find out how to get the right size bike for your toddler, click here

Doorstep bike services

One of our trained mechanics will come to your home and service your bike on your doorstep.

What safety measures are we putting in place?

When visiting homes to deliver a bike or undertake any bike maintenance, we will:

  • stay outside and remain 3 metres away from you and any members of your household
  • always where gloves
  • disinfect the handlebars of all borrowed bike 

Stay well and take care,

The Wheely Tots team
