Children can ditch the stabilisers at new Bikeability courses in Malvern

CHILDREN will be able to progress from four wheels to two by taking part in new Bikeability – Learn to Ride sessions in Malvern.

The nationally accredited classes, aimed at children four and above who cannot yet ride a bike, will take place at Sport Dyson Perrins.

They run at 4.30pm to 5.30pm on Monday, September 14, then September 24 and October 1.

The courses will be held at the leisure centre’s tennis courts and cost £7.50 per child.

Most children master all the skills needed to learn to ride within one session, so it is recommended parents/guardians book their child onto one course in the first instance.

Rachel Nicholls, Physical Activity and Wellbeing Officer for Malvern Hills District Council, said: “Our Bikeability Learn to Ride courses provide that support and practical advice to help build the confidence and skills of any budding cyclist.”

Participants must provide their own bike which must be roadworthy and helmet.

Social distancing measures will be followed at all times.
