Children can cycle at RIDE IT events for free. The whole family can enjoy a great day out cycling with our shorter route options.
Cycling is a fantastic fun activity for children that can encourage independence, socialising and confidence building. Our organised rides enable you to explore a new area without the hassle of planning a route.
For family rides we recommend that children can cycle independently or sit in a child seat.
Under 16's ride for free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.
If you are over 16 but under 18 you must enter as an adult and can ride alone, but your parent/guardian must attend the event centre with you and sign in on your behalf giving consent for you to participate.
You know your own ability levels and those of your children and are in the best position to decide if they can tackle a ride.
We offer 10-15 mile fun routes on most of our Sportives for just £7.50.
These shorter rides are great if you’re just starting out on the cycling scene, or if you want to bring your family along. We’ll still pack in some hills and great descents to give you a taste of what could be in store should you look to enter a longer ride.
At all our events, under 16s ride free; under 16s must ride with a fee paying adult and 17 year olds can ride independently providing we have signed consent from a parent or guardian at the event centre.
Fully catered and way-marked RIDE IT events are a fantastic way to introduce children to cycling, encourage their independence and increase confidence.
