Summer is just around the corner so now is a perfect time for you and your children to dust off your trainers, ditch the stabilisers and enjoy Lincolnshire’s countryside on your bikes.

The Velo Cycling Club in Lincoln is running a series of courses to help children ride their bikes safely and with confidence.

Velo Cycling Club work with children as young as four years old and help them to achieve their bronze, silver and gold awards in cycling skills.

But it’s not just for the youngsters – the intermediate age group focuses on team racing at the purpose built one mile track behind the Yarborough Leisure Centre.

Parent Andy Kent told SportsLinc: “My eight-year-old son Matthew has been riding for two years . Cycling gives him focus and fitness.

“My daughter Sofia, who is seven, started cycling this year and she is building up her confidence.”
