We are running our classes at various venues across Sussex. We have both outdoor venues, because it’s always great to be out in the fresh air, and indoor venues, just in case it gets a bit too wet and cold during the winter months.
Learn to Ride Classes
Balanceability Level 1 course at Nurseries
This is aimed at children from the age of 2-4 yrs. At this level, the fundamental movement patterns, gross motor skills and dynamic balance are incorporated along with an introduction to the balance bike. Children learn how to pick up, manoeuvre, mount and dismount their bikes and then learn the skills to ride a balance bike safely. The aim of level 1 is to create the confidence to glide a balance bike with their feet off the floor.
COURSE COST: £100 per 1 hour session (up to 20 max children in 2 x 30 minute classes or 10 max children in a 1 hour class)
Balanceability Level 2 weekly x 3 sessions at schools
This is aimed at children of 4-11+ and continues the development of gross motor skills and dynamic balance. The main goal is to get the children pedalling their bikes, stopping and braking skills to enable them to ride solo on a pedal bike safely and confidently. The art of riding a bicycle is dependent upon a good understanding and experience of balance.
COURSE COST: £65

Woodland Freeride Session
Discover the fantastic wildlife and woods that we are so lucky to have on our doorstep in Brighton & Hove. Once your child is competent riding on their bikes why not join us on the first Sunday every month at 0900-1000,1015-1115 (parent welcome to join their child) for a ride around the woods at Stanmer Park. There are lots of gentle trails wiggling in and out of the trees that will help develop and test your children’s cycling skills.

Birthday Parties: Up to 10 children for 1 hour (if you need bikes + helmets) or no maximum if any children bring their own bikes & helmets).
If your child enjoys cycling, then why not celebrate their big day with a Glide Balance bike birthday Party. We will turn up to a venue of your choice with bikes, helmets and either have a balance bike disco (similar to a roller disco but on bikes) or set up a freestyle course comprising of mini ramps, a limbo bar, slalom course, bubbles. We will also play some classic party games but on bikes and maybe even a game of bike football?! The birthday girl or boy will receive a free Free Woodland class and then a 50% voucher on a Level 1 or 2 course.
