Drop-in activities

We’ll usually be doing one of the following:

  • Bike Mechanics: learn basic bike maintenance to keep your bike running smoothly.
  • Cycle Skills: cruise on a balance bike, master pedalling or boost your skills with cycling games.

Booking-only activities

We offer free cycling courses, activities and led rides in school holidays at Southmead, Lockleaze and Felix Road Adventure Playgrounds. Activities are promoted via the Adventure Playgrounds' and our own social media.

Access to bikes

We have a selection of bikes that young people can use during our sessions. Your child is welcome to bring their own bike too. We’re usually able to do basic bike maintenance and safety checks on your child’s bike during the session.

Any questions?

We'd be happy to help! Feel free to contact us.
