Our free balance bike clinics at Sydney Park are a great way to get the kids some fresh air and exercise.

Balance bikes are a fantastic way for young children to develop a love of riding. Kids learn the basics like steering, turning corners and balancing on two wheels from day one.

When they’re ready to stop they simply put their feet on the ground.

Once they can glide confidently, they can graduate to pedals.

Come along a class during the January 2019 school holidays at the Sydney Park Cycling Centre.

Experienced instructors will help 3 to 8 year olds master the art of bike riding and progress to pedals without training wheels.

There’s no need to book, just turn up and register on the day.

Bikes and helmets are available, or you can bring your own.

The interactive classes are designed to get parents involved in their children’s learning.
