Skating & Biking Activities in York for Kids. Suitable for Primary School Age Children (4 – 12 years old)
Hi, My name is Dave Burns.
I live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and that’s where i do my stuff…Yorkshire. Most of my training is done at Saltergate School and if in school time at Killinghall Moor. I like riding bikes too.
As a National Standard, British Cycling accredited Instructor for Bikeability Levels 1, 2 and 3 I can get anyone riding in a fun and friendly way. I am also a Qualified HSBC UK/British Cycling Level 1 Ride Leader… and also being a British Cycling Level 2 Coach also helps… with plenty tricks and resources up my sleeve 🙂
I can get your precious ones started on a life of two wheeled fun and adventures from mastering balance bikes to proper pedalling to school or for weekend exploring.
Kids shouldn’t have all the fun though so I can get you, a friend or a whole gang of pals pedalling too. Whether you’ve never even sat on a bike, you’re just a bit rusty or you want to take your skills and cycling confidence to the next level for commuting, fitness or just fun I can teach you how to ride happily, healthily and safely wherever you want.
Want to try something fun and different? Are you aged between 2 and 100? Then why not come to Rockin Rollers – Roller Disco!
