Gateway Cycling » Coaching


CoachingGateway Cycling runs weekly, term-time, cycle coaching sessions for children aged 7 – 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.  If your child is riding with stabilisers and you would like coaching for them then please let us know and we might be able to run some sessions if we can get the numbers we need.

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?
