The 1:1 Magic Hour


Held throughout the year on pretty much every Saturday and occasionally Sundays too…

…the 1:1 Magic Hour is just that. An hours 1:1 tuition that will set your little person off on a life of 2 wheeled fun and adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

No matter what their age or size, if you/they have never ridden a bike, then forget about the stabalizers and or a balance bike…ย  come along for some 1:1 tuition and i WILL get you/them riding proper ๐Ÿ™‚


Every child who could balance prior to their lesson, not only have i got them to ride, but i can normally get them setting off and stopping on their own, using brakes too… balance is critical and a huge help… the more they can balance the more time it leaves me to do my magic. A non balancer isnt the end of the world, as i can teach that too now, with some pretty awesome Strider balance bikes, it just means i may need a second lesson to get them up and riding proper ๐Ÿ™‚


If your little person is too big for a young child’s balance bike or you simply don’t have one, fret not ๐Ÿ™‚ย  simply take the pedals (and stabalizers) off their own bike/a bike that fits, drop the saddle and get bombing along with those feet in the air… or come and see me… i’ll hopefully/should get them balancing within the hour and save you from a weeks supply of back ache ๐Ÿ˜‰

To remove pedals, when stood on either side of the bike, you loosen them off by turning to the back of the bike, no matter what side you are on…so on the chain side you turn anticlockwise, on the non chain side, clockwise ๐Ÿ™‚ x

how to take your pedals off

Guaranteed madness, mayhem and a stack of fun for all our cycling superstars of the future…


Due to the nature of tuition when learning to ride with pedals it has to be a case of 1:1 as everyone learns at different rates… (balance is slightly different and i can do in little groups ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and of all those who could balance prior, all but one have gone from balance bike to pedaling within the hour ๐Ÿ™‚ (my only failure was a little girl who refused to pedal. She came back for a second lesson and i think, after a few “words” from mummy and daddy the night before, she did pedal this time and was riding within about 5 minutes ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Aย  Magic Hour session is ยฃ25.

Its all done here during the holidays and at weekends ๐Ÿ™‚

Saltergate Junior School directions

1:1 Magic hours are held during school holidays (when Molly and Maisie care permits) and pretty much most weekends throughout the year…and there’s never bad Yorkshire weather by the way… just poor clothing choice ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the day, bring your little persons bike without stabalisers and their helmet … again, dont fret if you dont have one/neither… training is done on my Islabikes and i have helmets ๐Ÿ™‚

I will advise you on the practicality of your child’s bike and help you with any questions with regards a new bike you may want to get them ๐Ÿ™‚

Once they can ride… don’t do what i did once …


i was in sooo much trouble, but was soon back in the good books though…
