They should be able get going, keep momentum and control the speed and direction of their bike without additional adult support. We would strongly encourage you to book your child onto our 7+ core skills module before doing this session. They will struggle to understand the learning content and concepts unless they have done the core skills module first. Most children on this course will be between the ages of 7 and 10. However, if you have an older child who is small for their age then they are also very welcome. Please do not book you child onto this course if they are under 7 unless this has been approved by one of our instructors.

A well fitting helmet, gloves and appropriate clothing for the conditions on the day (more details on this will be provided in session information pack after booking).
