Age 5+ Open Session and Taster

These open sessions aim to give younger children a fun experience, building confidence and planting the seed of great technique along the way. They are ideal for your child as a one off or for progression over multiple sessions. Designed primarily for children aged 5-6 they can also be a great experience for slightly older kids who just want to dip a toe in and find out if mountain biking is for them.

Open Session: 1 hour sessions, £10

22/10 – 4pm, 27/10 – 2pm, 28/10 – 2pm

More dates coming soon. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to find out.

Age 7+ Coaching Pathway, Course and Session Information

Our 7+ coaching pathway starts with the fundamentals then takes children onto more advanced skills, technical features and trails whilst progressing their riding in a safe, enjoayble and exciting learning environment.

It’s really important to us that all participants have a really positive mountain biking experience. For this reason we would ask you to take some time to look at the options and book them on an appropriate session for their ability. More detail can be found by clicking through to the event via the calendar below.

11+ Coaching Pathway, Course and Session Information

Older riders tend to have either been through our 7+ coaching pathway or are a little more confident to start with, having been riding a bike for longer. Again, we would encourage you to have a look at the description for each session and book your child onto one that feels appropriate for their ability. If your child is 11+ but a little less confident or less experienced booking them onto a 7+ session to begin with could be a great confidence boost. If you are unsure please give us a call and ask to speak to one of our coaches.

Cancellations: We will always do our best not to cancel a session. However, there are some weather conditions which we would deem to be unsafe to coach children in. These are normally conditions that would lead to an amber weather warning. If we do need to cancel we will notify you at the latest 6pm the day prior to the session. If we have not contacted you by then the session will go ahead.

With regards to Covid19. We are a small team and are currently trading in a way that has been signed off as ‘Covid Safe’ but also that aims to minimise the impact of Covid19 on our operations. However, due to the pandemic there is currently an increased risk that we may need to cancel or postone a session. Please bear this in mind when booking. As with weather cancellations we would always let you know by 6pm the day before the session,  but would aim to inform you very much earlier where possible.

If we need to cancel for any reason you will be offered a credit for a future session, a gift voucher (which can be spent on any of our products or services) or if you don’t think you will have any future need for these, a full refund.

If you child is experiencing symtoms of coronavirus do not bring them to a session. Please email: ollie@pedalprogression.com and we will be able to discuss your cancellation options.
