New courses to help children and adults ride a bike with confidence are taking place at Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit.

The free sessions are aimed at children aged four to seven who are learning to ride for the first time and children aged six to 10 and adults who want to learn basic bike skills and gain more confidence on two wheels.

There are two sessions each day on August 10, 16 and 23 at the circuit which is based at Prissick Sports Base, off Marton Road.

Complete beginners will learn how to set off and stop safely, balancing and manoeuvring skills and how the bike works.

Children and adults who can ride a bike unaided will learn basic bike skills and work towards gaining cycling safety qualifications.

There is a women-only session and a family session.

The training is delivered by qualified staff from the popular Middlesbrough Cycle Centre, based in Middlesbrough Bus Station.

Clare Lowe, from Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit, said: “The training sessions are aimed at children and adults who want to learn basic bike skills in a fun way.

“Riding a bike is such a fun activity and the cycle circuit is the perfect, safe venue for anyone no matter what age to gain more confidence on a bike.”

Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit opened in March this year and was funded by the Middlesbrough Healthy Town programme, British Cycling, and NHS Middlesbrough.

The 1km purpose built enclosed circuit is a safe environment for beginning and novice cyclists to learn.

To book a place on the sessions call 01642 300202. For full details of the cycle skills sessions log on to: Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit
