With one hour-long sessions, a maximum group size of five and plenty of playground space the public courses provide children with a great environment for developing their cycling skills.
For the Learn to Balance and Ride (L2BR) sessions each child is provided with a balance bike and lightweight pedal bike. Helmets are also available if they don’t already have one. Unless your child is balancing on two wheels already or very close to doing so I strongly recommend you book two sessions, ideally on different days. The cost is £32 for two sessions and £19 for one session.
For the Developing Better Bike Control (DBBC) sessions your child must be able to ride already. Children are welcome to use their own bike provided it is roadworthy and of the correct size or they can hire one for £3. One session is normally sufficient for most children. The cost is £16 if using their own bike or £19 if using one of mine.

Children with special needs, unless profound, generally progress well with the public sessions. However private sessions are also available which are slightly longer and of course allow very focused attention in a quieter environment. Details of the private sessions are here: www.hertsbalance.uk/private-sessions. If you’re unsure whether a public or private session is likely to work best for your child(ren) call me on 07941 061717 or email me Phil@Hertsbalance.uk beforehand and we can chat through.
Public courses will start again in mid/late March 2024 and normally run during each of the school holidays as well as on some weekends (Saturday and Sunday). Course dates and booking normally are on the website 4 – 6 weeks in advance.
Private sessions run throughout the year and details of these are here: Private Sessions – Hertsbalance.
