Saturday 13th June 10 till 12 (no need to book, just turn up) at Sciennes Primary School (map) – followed by Kidical Mass (family bike ride) at 12
Is your family bike curious? Would you like to get cycling with your children but don’t know where to start? Or do you want to move from baby seat to trailer or tagalong? Our workshop at Sciennes Primary School will help you get pedalling with children on board! This year with a ‘bike jumble’ – your chance to pick up a secondhand bargain to get you off to a flying start.
Childcare – and hence family cycling – is more than just a woman’s responsibility but we’ve added this event onto the wider day because we thought it would be helpful for everyone (and it was exactly the sort of thing we would have wanted ourselves). So this day is for everyone, including those without any kids yet of their own.
We’ll have experienced ‘cycling families’ on hand to give you some advice, and show you what you’ll need to get your child attached to your bike safely. You’ll be able to try out a range of equipment, from both front and back mounted baby seats to trailers and tag-alongs and even a cargo bike. There will be a cycle ride tutor on hand to help you master your riding technique if your child is old enough to ride independently and a Dr Bike to check over any bikes you bring along.
There will also be some bike friendly crafts to try out and plenty of caffeine and cake for anyone that needs it!
We’ll be heading off round the Meadows for a famly bike ride at 12 – come and join us!
