Children will be able to take part in cycling sessions at Leverhulme Park Community Club this month.

Running from August 15 to 19, young people aged 5 to 11 will be able to learn how to ride safely, develop their cycling skills and build their confidence.

Sessions will run from 1.00pm until 3.30pm for all five days, and children must bring their own bikes and helmets.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, Councillor Nick Peel, said: “The sessions provide a safe and controlled environment for young people to get used to riding independently.

“Cycling is a great way of getting young people out in the fresh air and, what’s more, the sessions are great value for money, meaning that as many people as possible will be able to take advantage of them.”
 
Each day will have a different theme, as follows:

  • Monday 15 August: Learn to ride day (adult supervision required)
  • Tuesday 16 August: Basic bike skills
  • Wednesday 17 August: Moving on with bike skills
  • Thursday 18 August: Basic mountain bike skills
  • Friday 19 August: Led ride around park cycle trail

Each session costs just £1 and the week course costs £4. To book a place on one or all of the days call 01204 334272; places are limited so it is advised to book early to avoid disappointment. Children will need a suitable means of getting home from sessions.
