Holiday firm offers in-house cycling training for children

One of the UK’s major seaside holiday firms is making a positive step to get more children to learn to ride a bike. 

Holiday parks specialist Haven has announced that it is offering the cycle proficiency Bikeability training scheme at some of its sites at no extra cost to holidaymakers staying at its seaside-based sites.

Haven said it was keen to encourage children as young as two to get on a bike for the first time, while give older children the confidence to safely on the roads in a safe and traffic free environment.

Having fun learning

Children aged two for instance will be started using special brightly coloured bikes with no pedals, while Haven has devised lots of fun games and activities that will help younger children feel comfortable on two wheels. Once the children gain confidence they progress to proper bikes with pedals and will be trained up to Bikeability Level 1.

The scheme is fully accredited by Bikeability and children gaining their Level 1 certificate will be able to take this forward to the next stage after their holiday.

In all Bikeability will be available at 12 of Haven’s 35 sites: Presthaven Sands; Hafan y Mor; Craig Tara; Primrose Valley; Blue Dolphin; Thorpe Park; Combe Haven; Rockley Park; Church Farm; Devon Cliffs; Seashore and Perran Sands.

The summer holidays are a great time for young children to learn how to ride a bike, so its great to see Haven take such an initiative.
