Holiday Camps for Kids on Bikes
in Richmond, Surrey, UK

Holiday camps for kids on bikes
Teaching your children to cycle safely
The Kids' Bike Camp is a holiday camp dedicated to improving the cycling skills of primary and secondary school children.  As a registered Bikeability scheme, children are taught by National Standard Cycling Instructors in small groups of similar ability.  We will:
  • Get them off their stabilisers and on to two wheels
  • Teach them balance and control of their bike
  • Improve their cycling skills
  • Increase their awareness and safety
  • Build up their confidence whilst having fun on their bikes
  • Incorporate fun and educational off bike activities too
  • Teach them how to cycle safely on quiet roads (age 9+)
Schools: ​​​​​​​​​if you would like us to come to your school and run a course (from Beginners to Bikeability Level 2) please contact us.

Children booked into ​​​​​Beginners:
  •  can't ride a two wheel bike independently yet  
  • need assistance from an individual or have stabilisers on their bike
We will teach them to balance, steer and brake and when they are ready we can take the stabalisers off and they can ride on two wheels.
 
 
Children booked into ​​​​​​Improvers:
  • can ride a two wheel bike independently for about 10 seconds
  • might need some assistance with starting and stopping.  
We will help them to improve their balance, steering and control and introduce them to some more advanced skills and safety information.
Children booked into ​​​​​​Level 1 :
  • can already competently ride their bikes. starting, steering and stopping accurately through an obstacle course.
They will practice and improve their skills and knowledge with obstacle courses designed to prepare them to ride on the road or in the park.  
Children booked into ​​​​​Level 2 :
  • can already competently ride their bikes. starting, steering and stopping accurately through an obstacle course.
They will learn how to deal with traffic on the road on short journeys. 
Whilst children learn to ride their bikes best by simply doing it, we also understand that they need time off their bikes to recharge their batteries and play.  
We incorporate fun games and activities off the bikes as well as on as part of our program.
 
Children should be aged between 4 years and 18 years old at the time of the camp.
