Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows all have the coveted cycling badge to achieve.
We have helped many groups to get their award by running 90 minute to 2 hour sessions at their hall or nearby park and working towards all of the core elements required in the badge book.
Typically for the younger riders this means 30-45 minutes of helping them fix their bikes and understand what they need to carry in a cycle repair kit, when to ‘light up’ and how to conduct a safe helmet and clothing check. This is followed by another 45 minutes to an hour of practical riding skills, following a basic obstacle course and playing small games designed to help them work on core skills and balance.
For older riders the badge requirements are a bit stricter, and we can support you to organise sessions, trips and bike maintenance days to get all the required elements. Add in a healthy lifestyles session with the smoothie bikes and a peer to peer coaching session for some younger riders and you have a really meaningful and fun course that they can really engage with.
