Lose The Stabilisers

Benfleet, Essex
bike - Up to 1 person


One to one, half-hour sessions to teach your child to ride without stabilisers. Led by our experienced coaches to a tried and tested method.

SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. Parents/guardians breaking social distancing rules (currently 2m) will be politely asked to move away. Persistent breaches may result in the lesson having to be abandoned.

We recommend you book 2 or 3 weekly sessions. Most children are riding in this time, and if they learn in the first session then the remaining time can be used to build confidence.

A 72-hour cancellation policy is in operation.

We run through all weathers (except extreme weather, e.g. very strong winds.

What to bring

Your child will need

  1. bike*
  2. helmet*
  3. suitable clothes for the weather

*we can hire a bike for £5 and a helmet for £1


We encourage everyone to ride. If you wish to discuss your child's additional needs please contact us.


We use the tarmacked area behind the hub- a quiet area, with a flat, smooth surface.

There will be a separate area for the coach to check over and adjust any bikes used by the learners. This space is for the sole use of the Coach and Hadleigh Park Cycles staff and learners/parents/carers should not enter the area.

We generally take the stabilisers and pedals off the bike, and practice balancing. When the child is ready we add pedals...and the child rides!

Adults... what to do? Most people booking this have tried to teach their child, but one party ends up getting cross: we have all been there! You might like to stay and watch or you are welcome to go and have an ice cream or cup of tea.

PLEASE NOTE: Social distancing will be required from the parents/carers of the learners during this time.

If you are late for a session we will be unable to give you extra time after the booked session is due to finish.


Refund if cancelled at least 72 hours prior to booking.

  1. Full refund if cancelled at least a full 72 hours prior to the activity start time.
  2. If the conditions on the day aren’t ideal but the activity can still take place, the customer will not be eligible for a refund. Weather forecasts are consulted and if the activity falls within the scope of our comprehensive risk assessments, it will take place. If it is raining or windy the activity will take place.

Although we hope you don't need to cancel your booking, you can do so at any time up to 72 hours prior the start time of the booked activity and receive a full refund. If you cancel within 72 hours of the start time of the booked activity, or you are very late, or do not attend the booked activity (i.e. a ‘no-show’) you will not receive a refund. We run on tight margins and still have to pay our coaches. Thank you for your understanding.
