Summer Camp Nationwide Cycling Academy Manchester


Our superb Cycle Summer Camp has now finished. But we had an amazing 5 weeks of fun on bikes. Please check back in the New Year for next years dates!

Each day on our fantastic cycling summer camp consists of activities designed to build confidence, enhance cycling skills and increase riders’ all round biking abilities, with the aim to help each rider get more from their bikes.

Gain confidence, learn new skills, pick up tips, ride with Team NCA, try different types of cycling, play bike games and join in with races and skill tests.

Special Tuesdays focus on a skills-specific session, i.e. Mountain Biking or BMX combined with a ride out, fun games and theory in the afternoon. There will also be an emphasis on safer on road cycling as part of our DFT approved Bikeability Course.

Please check back in the new year for updated information on our special Tuesdays.

Week 1: Mountain Biking
Week 2: Bikeability
Week 3: Cycle Speedway
Week 4: BMX

The NCA teaches core cycling skills to thousands of school children each year so we know how to cover the basics – cycling is at the heart of everything NCA does. Here basic skills are fused with cleverly designed games, skills and activities then mixed with treasure hunts so that the emphasis is always on fun.
