Children’s Cycling Classes in Halifax
We’re delighted to confirm that from September 2021, we will be offering our unique programme of cycling classes at the Brooksbank Cycle Track in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
And if that wasn’t excitement enough, these sessions will be headed up by none other than Ed Clancy OBE himself, as soon as he returns from this year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo! So your child can learn to ride with an Olympic gold medalist!
Just like our flagship academy in Doncaster, we will be offering classes for children and young people. Starting at just 18 months for little ones learning how to balance, right through to teenagers looking to develop their race skills.
With limited spaces and sessions available only on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays, early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
Read on for more information about the different classes we offer:
BALANCE & LEARN Information
These sessions are all about getting the kids mobile on 2 wheels before progressing to riding with pedals. Once they’re riding without stabilisers, they’ll receive their Clancy Briggs ‘Medal for Pedals’ - a memento of this key milestone. Each week we also award a ‘Champion of the Week’ to the rider who has caught the eye of the coaches through regular attendance and the acquisition of new skills.
Our LEARN sessions are for those kids who are a little older, who already have a grasp of balance co-ordination and agility off the bike but who have yet to transfer these skills across to their bike riding for independent riding without stabilisers.
Halifax BALANCE & LEARN Class Times:
16.30 - 17.10 LEARN
11.00 - 11.40 BALANCE
11.00 - 11.40 LEARN
Our PEDAL sessions are for children of any age who can pedal independently (without stabilisers). In these sessions we will give them the skills needed to become happy, safe cyclists and to get the most from their bike and the places that they ride it.
Halifax PEDAL Class Times:
16.30 - 17.15 PEDAL
17.15 - 18.00 PEDAL
11.45 - 12.30 PEDAL
Our RACE classes are for riders with a competitive edge. We focus on the skills that underpin racing success. Cornering, bunch riding, sprinting & tactical awareness are examples of the fundamentals included on a weekly basis.
Halifax RACE Class Times:
12.30 - 13.15 RACE
