Free cycle skills sessions for families.
Family Bike Weeks are about getting the whole family cycling together and to learn some cycling skills together whilst getting some exercise, fresh air and importantly, having some fun. Qualified cycling instructors from Cycle Confident will lead sessions to make sure they are suitable and engaging for all ages and abilities. Children aged 7 and over are eligible to cycle and must be accompanied by an adult. Under 7s can join the brand-new Balance Bike Creche, run by one of the instructors in the park while the rest of the groups are practicing their off- or on-road skills. Sessions are free to join, sign up via Cycle Confident's website.
There is a limited number of bikes and balance bikes available – these can only be guaranteed to those who have signed up in advance and requested them. If you have your own bike, you are advised to bring it. Not sure whether your bike is safe to ride? Why not get it checked out first at one of the free Dr Bike sessions.
