Family Training

Who's it for?

Sessions are open to all ages, but children must be able to cycle and control their bikes.

Our bespoke family training provides guidance on how to safely cycle as a group on the road. Whether you’re new to cycling or just in need of some practice, we’ll teach you how adults should lead journeys and how children should follow.

Due to current government guidelines family groups must be from the same household.



What we are doing to ensure your safety?

• This training takes place outdoors and in an unrestricted place, so allows for easy social distancing
• Guidance will be issued to participants on registration about things they need to consider before the session.
• Instructors are fully briefed on best practice to ensure your and their safety
• If you are feeling unwell please cancel your session at the earliest opportunity
• Any questions please contact the team at cycle.training@tfgm.com



How it works

If you’re interested in a course, simply complete your details on our registration page and one of our instructing team will be in touch to discuss your session.

They will take into account you and your family’s current level of cycling ability and any particular needs or concerns, as well as talk you through how the session will be run in line with the Government’s Coronavirus guidelines. The session will then be designed to suit you including taking place at a time and location of your choice.

Family groups should be made up of a maximum of 2 adults and 3 children and due to current government guidance all should be from the same household. Please note all the family will need to have a bike to take part.



What you'll learn

Led by a qualified instructor, this tailor-made training will help improve everyone’s confidence on cycling journeys.

Following a chat about your family’s cycling ability, adults will be taught the necessary skills required to lead safe cycling trips. We will show you how to ride protectively with your children and how they can travel safely on the roads.



What you need

All participants will need their own roadworthy bike and to wear whatever they feel comfortable cycling in.



Where

The sessions are delivered close to your home, or a place which is convenient.



How long?

Each session lasts two hours.
