Cycling for Juniors

Because of the rising physical and mental health concerns for our children, cycling has become one of the most popular activities to try out.

Putting the COVID-19 pandemic to one side, the modern world means more time spent indoors using computers, playing computer games and less time being spent in the great outdoors. Advanced social media communications also lead to less face-to-face social engagement amongst peer groups

We aim to encourage change by providing a safe environment for children to take part in a varied number of cycling activities, suited to what they want to try out.

From the age of 5, parents can book children onto NCA’s learn to ride coached sessions. Learning to ride a bike can be the first step towards independent travel for our youngsters, giving them a new confidence. NCA have been offering learn to ride training for the last ten years and our Instructors have a wealth of experience in helping young, new riders get rolling on two wheels.

Once children have learned the basics, a whole new world is available to explore.

Bike rides with family or with friends mean they can enjoy the local off-road routes in a safe traffic free environment, whilst they gain confidence in their newfound ability.

As they develop their level of skill, NCA have several options available including our OFSTED registered, spring, summer and autumn cycle camps. Cycling with new friends, enjoying the fresh air in the local parkland, exploring the local greenspace is what our daily camp entails. Sign up for a day, a week or all the school holidays.

Our National Standards Instructors attend local primary and high schools delivering Bikeability cycle training too. It might mean we will be at your school soon, helping Year 5 and 6 children to make short journeys in a safer way

If your child wants to have a go at Mountain Biking, BMX or Cycle Speedway, our team of qualified Instructors have the experience and expertise to work with them on developing specific skills.

Book onto our Mountain bike courses for adult and junior beginners, which operate from Philips park using the purpose-built trails. An NCA MTB Junior club is being developed which children can sign up to for regular weekend meets, newsletters and coached sessions.
