I Want To Ride My Bike – Magic Hour

Nearly 3 years in now and I’m nearing 3000 kids, big and small, taught to ride a bike for the very first time.

As a National Standard, British Cycling accredited Instructor for Bikeability Levels 1, 2 and 3 I can get anyone riding in a fun and friendly way. I am also a Qualified HSBC UK/British Cycling Level 1 Ride Leader… and also being a British Cycling Level 2 Coach also helps… with plenty of tricks and resources up my sleeve.

I can get your little ones started on a life of two wheeled fun and adventures from mastering balance bikes to proper pedalling to school or for weekend exploring. If they are already riding and need to brush up on their skills/got a new bike, then an hours 1:1 tuition is perfect too.

Kids shouldn’t have all the fun though so I can get you, a friend or a whole gang of pals pedalling too. Whether you’ve never even sat on a bike, you’re just a bit rusty or you want to take your skills and cycling confidence to the next level for commuting, fitness or just fun I can teach you how to ride happily, healthily and safely wherever you want.

Decades as a super keen rider and test consultant to the UK’s best selling bike magazines means I can even help you choose the best equipment, learn how to plan routes that suit your needs and ride them with you if that helps.

I’m fully insured through British Cycling, a qualified Emergency First Aider and have a full and complete Enhanced DBS certificate.

Cycle lessons for kids. Bike lessons for adults. Learn to ride a bike. Cycle tuition. It all boils down to one single word… fun ”

We genuinely cannot recommend SCS coaching enough, we have two boys aged 8 and 6 and they look forward to the school holidays so much just so that they can go to the sports camp. They love the staff and the variety of activities that they have each day, swimming is a highlight for my eldest child. They also enjoy meeting children from other schools as well as their own, so we cannot thank you enough for providing such a rewarding, reliable and trustworthy camp for our boys, we would be lost without you! Mr & Mrs Burnley
