Ride a Bike Workgroups
For our Early Years and Target Specific families

This summer we’re running our workshops for parents who want to teach their child to ride a bike. This will be run by our project workers.

The first sessions will be Online Information Sessions for parents and carers, and these will be on:

  • Thursday 27th June at 12pm and Monday 1st July at 8pm 

At these online sessions we will go through the practicalities of teaching your child to ride a bike and how to decide if your child is ready, as well as watching some videos of the basic exercises we will be using.

These practical sessions will be held on:

  • Wednesday 3rd July 2024 and Tuesday 30th July 2024
  • Edinburgh Academy Junior School, 10 Arboretum Road, EH3 5PL.
  • The sessions will run throughout the day from 10am to 3pm.

We will be using an enclosed playground area within the school grounds. The area is fenced. We have access to toilets in the school building  Families will be allocated an hour time slot to practice exercises. Your Project Worker will confirm your date and time.  

Places on this workshop must be booked in advance as there are limited places. To book email or speak to your project worker. Thank you.

Getting there – Buses go to Inverleith Row (8, 9, 23, 27) and Ferry Road (8, 9, 14, 21, 27). The school is a 5-7 minute walk from the bus stop. There is also free parking available inside the school campus.  

On the day – Please bring your child’s bike (without stabilisers) or balance bike if you have one, and if it is practical for you. There will be bikes available if you do not have one or it is not practical for you to bring one. Please bring a helmet and any safety equipment you would like your child to wear. Drinks, snacks and motivating toys for your child to use during break times would also be great! 

Please note that parents are responsible for their children at all times. Tailor Ed staff will be on hand to demonstrate exercises and support as required.
