Doncaster Schools Free Taster Sessions

At Clancy Briggs Cycling Academy we’re passionate about promoting cycling and encouraging youngsters to learn a skill that we believe will be beneficial to them, throughout their adult lives.

We’re local to Doncaster and run some of our cycling sessions from the Doncaster Dome Cycle Track on Saturday mornings. We’ve contacted local schools in the area and we’re inviting pupils of those schools to come down to our Saturday morning Pedal classes to try a session for free.

What is a Pedal class?

Our pedal classes are open to youngsters aged 5 years +, they’re best described as, fun on bikes.

In these classes we use a wide range of ramps and equipment alongside the local terrain to challenge riders and develop their skills in as many ways as we can.

Riders in these classes’ riders forge friendships through shared experiences and overcoming cycling challenges, youngsters will learn more than they ever thought possible.

All pedal classes are open to the full age range, although we often try to group similar ages/abilities of rider together, if our coaches think another timeslot would be more suitable for your youngster they will contact you to discuss.

You don't need any specific type of bike to take part in these sessions, mtb’s, road bikes or hybrids are all welcome. The only pre-requisites are that youngsters can pedal unaided, without stabilisers or assistance & that they can competently control a bike, being able to start and stop safely. Our regular Pedal classes cost £36/month for a 45min session each week.

What timeslots can I come for a taster session?

We’re offering for pupils of local schools to come down to 1 free taster session on a Saturday morning at our Doncaster Dome sessions. We have 3 session times available to be joined for a taster.

11:00 – 11:45 This is our most advanced Pedal class, it’s better for confident riders & those who enjoy competition as we tend to do a little more racing in this class. Suggested age range is 7+
