Youth sessions at Lee Valley VeloPark

Our kids' sessions range from activities for children as young as two up to 16 years. They're perfect for those learning to ride a bike, beginners, through to more experienced riders who want to develop their skills with our experienced coaches.

We offer a number of other skills sessions where adult and youth riders train together. For more information on these sessions please see the discipline specific pages.

  • Children aged 12 and over don't require parent/guardian supervision however it's strongly recommended
  • All riders aged 17 and under attending any session will require a parental consent form to be completed for each occasion.
