Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

Chil­dren took to cy­cling like duck­lings to wa­ter at a Learn to Cy­cle event held in Ash­ford on Tues­day.

Thir­teen young rid­ers at­tended the work­shop, hosted by Sure Steps at the chil­dren’s cen­tre, in Bel­most Road, Ken­ning­ton, in part­ner­ship with Ac­tive Ash­ford and Cy­cle Cir­cle, and used pedal free bal­ance bikes to break them into cy­cling slowly.

Sure Step Lee Robin­son said: “The event was re­ally well at­tended and suc­cess­ful.

“The Cy­cleCir­cle ses­sions help to in­tro­duce chil­dren to the plea­sure of cy­cling in a fun and safe way. 2They use high qual­ity pedal free bal­ance bikes and pro­vide sup­port to help chil­dren de­velop bal­ance and con­trol at their own pace.”

Chil­dren can also bring along their own bikes to the ses­sions to help the tran­si­tion from sta­bilis­ers to the en­joy­ment of safe cy­cling.
