Free courses throughout Staffordshire
Monday, 24th July 2017
Staffordshire County Council are committed to encouraging all children to improve their cycling skills in a fun and safe environment through a variety of initiatives. This summer, in conjunction with Aspire Sports, we are offering FREE cycle training throughout the holidays for children aged between 4 and 10 years old.
All the programmes are focused around making cycling run. The children will be given the skills and confidence to ride their bikes off the road in small groups by qualified instructors.
You will be expected to bring your own bikes and helmets when participating*. However, in some circumstances we can provide bikes and the necessary safety equipment. Please make a note of this in your booking.
*Balance bikes provided at our Tamworth venue.
The cycle training is free, however because places are limited you must book your space in advance.
