Event description
Short 20 minute Cycle Training Sessions for toddlers aged 2-3 years old.

About this Event

Farcycles is a community cycling charity which runs free cycle teaching for children and adults. Training for beginners and improvers is carried out at the state-of-the-art Faringdon Cycle Park which opened in July 2019. There is a rubberised area for beginners and tarmac roads for improvers and for teaching road safety. The area links to a traffic-free 1km path, and from there to quiet residential roads, as cycling ability progresses. Trainers leading the sessions have undergone appropriate training and are DBS-checked.

These sessions are suitable for 2-3 year olds. We will run two sessions on Mondays through Aug from Mon 3rd (not the bank holiday 31st Aug) starting at 14.00 and 14.30.

Covid Safety Precautions

****IMPORTANT MESSAGE****

As we all begin to come out of lockdown and social distancing is relaxed, we are able to offer cycling training again but in a slightly modified format. This involves limiting numbers and teaching within small groups. Details are outlined in the section below.

In the lead-up to restarting cycle training, we have completed a Risk Assessment for our sessions and details of this assessment can be supplied on request. In order to safely comply with all government and British Cycling guidelines for social distancing and cycling teaching in groups, we ask all parents and children to follow our simple rules which can be found here.

Toddler Training

This group of 3 toddlers (and three parents) is for children aged 2 and 3 who have not yet mastered a balance bike. Each parent is expected to assist their child if and when necessary as the instructor provides guidance from a safe distance. It is designed to improve your child’s balance and coordination and activities will take place on the rubberised area. You may bring your own balance bike or use one provided by us. All equipment will be sanitised in line with our procedures.
