Welwyn Wheelers Summer School
Cycling skills development sessions for 5-6 year olds designed to improve young riders bike handling skills and build confidence.
After successfully completing the course over two consecutive mornings, the young riders will be invited to book and attend our regular Go-Ride Freewheel sessions.
Riders are expected to attend both the Thursday and Friday morning sessions, as these will be progressive.
11th-12th August and 18th-19th August 2022

Objective: Encourage younger children who are competent but not yet super-confident on their bikes to develop new skills and explore different aspects of riding
Target Group: Age 5-6 years old
Riding ability: Riders are expected to be able to ride their bike and use their brakes and want to develop their skills, in particular:
- Getting on and getting off
- Riding slowly with good control
- Riding in a group
- Riding one-handed
- Gear selection and use, for those who have them
It is the Parent or Guardians responsibility to make sure their young rider is provided with a suitably sized bike in good working order – please see the M Check video on how to check your bike. All riders must wear a Helmet (no helmet, no riding). Mitts are advisable and can be loaned for the session, if required. Please make sure the riders are equipped with a helmet, suitable clothing and footwear along with a water bottle. The session will still run if it is wet, so a lightweight rain jacket would be appropriate.
Arrive for sign on and briefing: 08:30am
Location: This young rider session will be held in the Bowl at Gosling Sports Park, Stanborough Road, Welwyn Garden City AL8 6XE. The session will use the athletics track, velodrome and grassed banked area.
