Coaching

CoachingGateway Cycling runs weekly, term-time, cycle coaching sessions for children aged 5 – 11. These sessions are all about developing bike skills whilst having fun. They take place at Hathaway Academy in a safe, traffic-free environment with our volunteer British Cycling qualified coaches.

Each session includes a bike and clothing safety check, warm-up and planned coaching activities. These activities will progressively develop bike handling skills, improve fitness and introduce riders to different types of cycle racing. The activities will be appropriate for the age and skill of all the riders taking part, to make sure that we develop skills and confidence gradually.

For the sessions we currently run your child will need to be able to ride their bike.  They can wobble around but must be riding unaided, without stabilisers.

The coaching sessions are open to members and non-members of Gateway Cycling.

Where do these sessions take place?
Hathaway Academy, Hathaway Rd, Grays RM17 5LL

When are they?
Every Saturday, during term time. The school gates open at 9:00am and we coach from 9:15 to 10:15.

How much do they cost?
£3.50 per session. First Session is FREE.

If you have more than one child who wants to attend these sessions then please talk to us as we can offer a sibling discount for members.
