PHGS children's coaching to be held at nearby Wharfe Meadows

Otley Cycle Club's Friday evening cycle coaching 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 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 will run as a block of five sessions, to be booked through Eventbrite using the link, on the following dates:

16th June
2?3rd June
30th June
7th July
14th July

Riders only need to be entered once to cover all five sessions. The cost of this will be £20 and this includes one year's membership of Otley Cycle Club.

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 rider 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!

A second block of 3 dates is planned for September as follows:

8th September
15th September
22nd September
