Cycling training courses for kids

Kids Learn 2 Ride

Learning to ride a 2-wheeler is one of those big childhood milestones, and it's a thrill to be part of that experience as a parent.

At our Learn 2 Ride sessions, qualified instructors work alongside you to get your kids riding, whether they are starting on a balance bike or making the transition to pedals.

A limited number of bikes are available if your child doesn't have a bike yet.

Sessions are run on a drop-in basis and are weather dependent.

  • Forrest Hill: 4 & 11 March, 10am to 12pm at Greville Reserve (off Forrest Hill Road).
  • Mt. Roskill: 25 March & 1 April, 10am to 12pm at Turner Reserve (off Glynn Road).

Find out about cycle training for 8- to 16-year-olds through our Bikesafe program.
