We’re running 5 half day sessions from 9.30am to 12.30pm each day, where we will explore fun off road gravel tracks and paths across the North East, exploring river, coast and countryside. A parent can also come and enjoy the adventure for free with the option to hire a Ridley Bike from us. You don’t have to but you would be welcome!
Bike4Health Summer Half Term Cycling Club
Following our very popular Easter Cycling Club we are offering the same cycling experiences for kids age 7-11 during the Summer Half Term week - Monday 31st May - Friday 4th June 2021.
We will be running 5 half day sessions where we will explore fun off road gravel tracks and paths across the north east. Exploring river, coast and countryside.
Our sessions will take place leaving from our base in North Tyne Industrial Estate opposite the Rising Sun Country Park. We’ll then head out on an off-road adventure! Morning sessions start at 0930 for children age 7-11.
Who is this activity suitable for?
This activity is suitable for children ages 7 to 11 years old. It is important that your child is:
- Able to cycle safely and proficiently
- Is comfortable cycling close to roads, on gravel paths and tracks
As we will be out cycling for up to 2 ½ hours, we recommend your child carries any essential medications with them (eg. inhalers). A parent can also come and enjoy the adventure for free. You don’t have to but you would be welcome!
If you are a parent who would like to ride with your child we would expect you to bring your own bike and helmet. (no helmet no ride). However, if you can't transport your bike or don't want to bring it for any reason then we can make one of adult mountain bikes available for a small charge of £10. Please indicate on booking, in the Additional Information text box if you would like to use one of our bikes.
