Sponsored by Harrow Council, Cycle Experience is running a free scheme to teach children to cycle. These fun sessions are for 3 to 11 year olds and will help them develop their balance skills and learn to ride a bike without stabilisers.

The lessons are taught by professional cycling instructors in small groups, and we provide free bike hire and a safe environment. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get your children riding!

How does it work?

Sessions run every Monday and Wednesday at Elmgrove School, Kenmore Ave, Harrow, Middlesex HA3 8LU at 4.10pm and 5.10pm.

During each 50 minute session we will run two groups: one for 3 to 5 year olds (Juniors) and one for 6 to 11 year olds (Seniors). You must register your child in advance for each session(s) so that we can keep group sizes small.

The scheme is wholly funded by Harrow Council and so the following restrictions are in place to ensure fair distribution of the cycle lessons:

  • A maximum of 3 lessons per child
  • A maximum of 1 lesson per day

Three sessions will likely be needed for a 3 to 5 year old, as they generally take a little longer to develop their balancing skills. 6 to 11 year olds will often require just two sessions, though it's not unusual for some children in this age group to be balancing and pedalling within their first 50 minute class. All sessions must be booked individually.

You can register below for the sessions. Because of the above restrictions it is very important that your child attends or, if you cannot attend, you contact us to cancel the booking. Also, if your child learns to ride quickly and doesn't need the extra sessions you may have booked, please let us know so that we can release the place(s) for others.Of course, if your child would like to continue attending to build confidence, they are welcome to do so!

A range of quality balance bikes and pedal bikes will be available for children to use, provided free by Harrow Council. Instructors are all fully accredited Bikeability Instructors who work regularly for Cycle Experience and all are CRB/DBS checked.
