Otley Cycle Club Children's Cycle Coaching - Summer 2024

Article image

Otley Cycle Club's Friday evening cycle coaching for summer 2024 is returning to Prince Henry's Wharfe Meadows site, opposite the main school.

These sessions are aimed at primary-aged children between year 1 and year 6 (Key Stage 1 – ages 5 -7 and Key Stage 2 – ages 7-11 ) and aims to improve confidence and skills when riding a bike in a safe and fun environment. We aim to foster a love of cycling through fun and exciting activities under the careful supervision of our British Cycling qualified coaching team.

The coaching sessions (max 30 places) will run as a block of six sessions on the following dates (Friday evenings 18:30 to 19:30):

14th June 2024
21st June 2024
28th June 2024
5th July 2024
12th July 2024
19th July 2024

Riders only need to be entered once to cover all six sessions. The cost of this will be £38 and this includes one year's family membership of Otley Cycle Club. To book the block of six sessions please email the Club with the full names and ages of the children that you want to attend the coaching together with your own contact details. We will respond with a confirmation email.

Riders should aim to arrive at 6.15pm to be signed-on and have their bike checked over, so they are ready to get started at 6.30pm. The session will last around 1 hour, ending at 7.30pm. At the end of each session there will be a short presentation session where our coveted "rider of the week" awards will be handed out!

Please note the following:

- We ask that all riders can ride their bikes independently (i.e. without stabilisers) before attending these sessions.
- Parents should remain at the school during the session
- Children must bring their own bikes. Our coaches will give them a once-over before the session to ensure that they are safe to ride.
- All children must wear a helmet at all times
- Children should be dressed appropriately. Obviously, we hope for lovely sunny weather, but if the weather changes during the session, it always helps to have a coat!
