Balance Bikes

The sessions use specialised bikes which are designed to help young children develop their balance and confidence which is needed to ride a bike.


  • We provide the instructor, bikes and helmets and the sessions are held at your school (indoor sessions).


  • The sessions are suitable for nursery and reception pupils.


  • A one hour session will allow instruction for 12 pupils (six children per half hour).  We can book longer sessions for larger groups (e.g. two hours to accommodate a class of 24 pupils) and morning and afternoon sessions are available on the same day to accommodate am/pm nursery classes.


  • It is recommended that three sessions are booked as it is a progressive course.


  • Taster sessions are available on request.


Don’t miss out on a fantastic opportunity for your children to learn to ride a bike! Availability is limited and the sessions are popular so advance booking is highly recommended.


We run a superb BMX track at Summerhill Country Park, ideal for all BMXers. The park is open seven days a week so get yourself along and join in the action!
