Get in on the action with a CycleSport Taster Day
Many children will have watched the Tour de France or Olympics on TV or maybe been out to the roadside as the Tour de Yorkshire peloton passes through their village, but few kids will have had the opportunity to experience live racing for themselves. Now, with a CycleSport Taster day, they can do just that, and do it in the safety and security of their own school under the expert supervision of a qualified Pro-Ride coach.
Each day CycleSport Taster Day comprises a series of sessions (usually four but up to six depending on size and timing) and offers each child the chance to learn new skills, gain confidence in riding and experience the thrill of track, road and off-road racing. Sessions start by working on developing basic circuit riding skills working on riding in a line, overtaking, cornering at speed, riding in pairs and riding in a bunch. The focus then switches to developing bike handling skills using a series of obstacle stations where the children work together in small groups. Finally the children take on their classmates in a series of head to head races and challenges tailored to the age and ability of the group.
All sessions are suitable for any KS2 class and activities are differentiated according to age and ability and be adapted for special needs if required. Children can either bring in their own bikes or hire a bike, Helmets and spare bikes are provided.
