Pupils will be expected to bring their own roadworthy bicycle which will checked by our instructors. We loan each pupil a hi-visibility waistcoat and a protective cycling helmet (if they don’t have their own). It may also be possible – given notice – to provide a loan bike for a pupil who does not currently have access to a roadworthy bike but can cycle.
The cycle training can be done on any sort of bike so long as it is roadworthy. You will need to check:
The checks above can be performed very quickly, and most adjustments made easily. If you are unsure to get the bike into roadworthy condition we recommend that it is checked over by a local bike shop. It is important that bikes are roadworthy but it’s more important that your child receives the cycle training. Remember if you do not have a suitable bike we may be able to provide a bike as long as you let us know well before the beginning of the course.
The course will take place in all but the most severe of weather so you should ensure that your child has warm and waterproof clothing especially gloves in the winter months. During the warm summer months please make sure your child has some sunscreen. We suggest that girls wear trousers or tracksuit bottoms when training.
