Half Term Child Cycle Training

Stuck for something to do this half-term? Why not get your child onto a free cycle training course during the week?

There are Bikeability Level 1 and Level 2 courses (level 1 for 8 years old; level 2 for 10 years old) at Longfield School and Harrow Leisure Centre.

You’ll need to bring your own bike and helmet, and you’ll be taught by experienced and motivated staff on a fun and safe course.

Courses start on Tuesday October 30th, 2012. For more details, please visit www.cycleexperience.com/holidaycourses/.

Your child will need to bring with them for all their course sessions:

  • A bike which is roadworthy. A bike check will be carried out on the first day and any bike which is not roadworthy will have to be fixed for your child to continue on the course. Download our bike safety checklist. 
  • A bike which is the correct size (Not too big and not too small).
  • A cycle helmet (which again must be of the correct size and fit properly.)

In addition you will need to ensure that your child:

  • Has sufficient warm clothing including gloves (sessions are between 1 and 2 hours and are outside) High visibility tabards are provided. If it is warm of course they may need some sun protection and water or fluids with them.
  • Has some wet weather clothing e.g. a shower or waterproof jacket as a minimum and preferably some overtrousers. The training will continue in light to moderate rain but will be suspended if there is a heavy downpour.
