Teaching your children to cycle safely
  1. What you should bring
    - Bicycle helmet -Bicycle - Sun cream if sunny -Warm clothes if cold (coat and gloves) - Waterproof clothing if raining - A healthy snack for break time - A healthy packed lunch (no nuts please) - A water bottle
  2. What you should wear
    All children need to wear a well fitting bicycle helmet and should be appropriately dressed for weather conditions e.g. a warm coat and gloves if the weather is cold and a waterproof jacket and trousers if it is likely to rain. Children should wear trainers rather than slip on shoes or open toed sandals and tracksuit bottoms or leggings are preferable to shorts or skirts.
  3. Your bike
    Your child's bike should be the correct size and in good working order. In particular, the brakes must work, the tyres must be in good condition and pumped up. They handlebars must be securely attached and fitted with bar end plugs. If your child uses stabilisers, please leave them on.
  4. First aid and safety
    Although we take every precaution to ensure safe cycling, some bumps and grazes may occur and so qualified first aid staff and a first aid kit are on site at all times. All activities, unless specifically specified, take place on site and children are supervised at all times. All Kids' Bike Camp Instructors have a current DBS disclosure and all staff are briefed on safeguarding, emergency and incident procedures.
  5. Timings
    9:30am to 12:30pm There will be time for a snack at break and lunch before going home. Early drop off is available by arrangement.
  6. Weather
    We will cycle what ever the weather, so please dress your children appropriately. We do have access to shelter if the weather is particularly bad.
The Parent’s Handbook
has been designed especially for parents, guardians or carers of young cyclists who have just completed their Bikeability training.
Its aim is to share with you what they have learnt and to give you the confidence to go cycling with them on roads or cycleways.
Developed by The Association of Bikeability Schemes.
