NCA Learn2Ride and cycling activities
Here at the Nationwide Cycling Academy, we provide safe and fun beginner cycle training activities.
These are designed to teach children, aged between 5 to 101 years old, how to ride confidently without stabilisers or support. Our aim is to encourage them to participate, keeping them healthy and active from a young age.
Our coaching team is enthusiastic and professional when it comes to children’s cycling lessons.
NCA Instructors are fully qualified to National Standard, are DBS checked, and have got thousands of children up and riding over the years.
NCA is an accredited DFT Bikeability Cycle Training provider, delivering cycle training in schools across Greater Manchester.
All of our Learn2Ride training sessions are limited to a maximum of four children per hour session. We believe that children learn faster when they are given more individual attention in order to develop their skills.
This type of learning experience is not suitable for larger groups, so the number within each group is kept to a minimum.
Learning to ride a bike is a huge life milestone which instills confidence and independence in our children. With this in mind, 1-2-1 lessons are also available for youngsters who are particularly nervous or have additional needs.
Bikes, helmets and gloves are available on the day and are provided free of charge, but you are more than welcome to bring your child’s own bike and equipment if you prefer. NCA Certificates are given to new riders, and stickers to those who may require a little more practice
Once the children are rolling on two wheels, we also have Cycle skills and Bikeability courses which gently introduce children to road safety, Mountain Bike training for the thrill seekers, and Cycle Maintenance sessions so that they can keep their bikes in great condition.
Finally, our summer cycle camp always proves to be a hit and is a great way to keep the children entertained through the school holidays.
