Frequently Asked Questions:
Q : Do I get a discount if I book in more than 1 child
A: The fee is subsidised by Manly Warringah Cycling Club and the cost is the same for multiple attendees.
Q: I’m interested in sending my child, but they don’t ride a bike, can I still send them?
A: All children need a basic level of riding
Q: What kind of activities will my kids learn at the camp?
A: We try to make the camps as enjoyable as possible while also teaching the kid’s cycle skills including cornering, stopping, climbing, descending, jumping, balancing. We will also cover correct Helmet fitting, maintenance and how to fix a flat tyre.
Q: How do you separate the kids?
A: We do our best to make sure the groups are organised to suit the variety of ages and abilities. Our Coaches run successful kids training during summer with the same mix of ages and abilities!
Q: Can I register for both days?
A: The plan is that both days are the same so it is probably not worth your child attending both days.
