We recommend that children learn to ride on their own bike but we can provide bikes and helmets for children who don’t have their own. All pupils will be required to wear a helmet during each lesson.

We can also offer FREE Dr Bike session prior to the course to ensure that children’s bikes are in good working order and safe to use.
