Ditch Your Stabilisers
Delivered each school holiday (Except Christmas), these sessions are designed to help you and your children to ride independently without the use of stabilisers.
Our team will provide the right environment, skills, knowledge and confidence to enable unassisted cycling. The sessions are hands on, so expect to get involved, they are extremely popular, and so booking is required.
Sessions are delivered at:
Litherland Sports Park – 9am – 12pm
Shoreside Primary School – 9am – 12pm
