Pedal Biker 1

Our five part Pedal Biker 1 Coaching course is aimed at riders just getting going at pedalling. They will be comfortable with riding on the flat and gentle slopes with the ability to come to a stop using their brakes. Ideally riders won’t be using stabilisers and we will hopefully give them the skills to take them off!

Pedal Bikers will develop skills like riding at low speed, cornering in both directions and linking turns together. Also navigating a slalom course and manoeuvring over obstacles and rollers (maximum height 6 inches). All activities are built around games with each group being split into teams.

For riders who might need some help with riding or confidently taking part we encourage parents or guardians to take part and offer support during the session. We pride ourselves on developing bike handling skills and we hope your child will leave SkidKids a more confident and able rider.

Is This Course Right For Your Child?

Children joining the Pedal Biker course should have good control of their bike when pedalling and be able to look up whilst riding. They should be comfortable using the brakes and confident of stopping on a gentle slope. The main thing however is enthusiasm! If your child is keen to ride and take part in games then they will be absolutely fine.

Pedal Bike Confidence

Getting to grips with pedalling and how to control speed Pedal riders will learn from the basics. Setting off safely, negotiating corners and learning how to react to other riders all feature on the course.

Rolling over simple obstacles will improve their control and activities are built around games with teams to helping each other navigate the activities.

Everything will be explained by Dave your coach and riders shown what to do. We pride ourselves on developing bike handling skills, your child will become a more confident and able rider after our course. The 5 week course develops with small groups, some riders learn skills at different rates but each activity is designed to cater for that range of abilities.

Where Next?

Once the basics have been learned riders can embed those skills with practice away from the sessions. We encourage riders to simply enjoy riding and there’s no pressure to progress any further than they’re comfortable

Prior to attending the first session we will send out a short survey that will include things like allergies or intolerances, a simple safety waiver and photography consent.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your little pedallers to SkidKids, if you have any questions ahead of the first date then please do get in touch via email on [email protected].
