Keycamp launches Learn to Ride lessons with BikeRight
Helping children to ditch their stabilisers for good, the Learn to Ride programme will provide children, aged three years plus, with a safe environment in which to learn the basics of bicycle-riding with BikeRight trained instructors, while mum and dad can sit back and relax.
Learn to Ride will be available for the 2011 season at six French parcs, including: Les Deux Fontaines and Les Menhirs in Brittany and Les Sablons, Club Farret and Cala Gogo, all in the Languedoc region and La Torre del sol in Catalonia.
On day one, budding cyclists get to learn the art of balance using specially created Zoom bikes, while on day two they’ll get to practice their new skill and learn to pedal and brake. Finally, on day three, it’s time for some fun – all finished-off with a certificate for all those that complete the course.
Why not get your kids on two wheels at the lovely Les Menhirs in Southern Brittany this May half-term. Not only does this superb parc offer Learn to Ride sessions, there’s also a fantastic swimming pool complex with slides, plus activities including canoeing and pony-trekking.
Once your little ones have fully mastered balancing on two wheels, the famous standing stones at Carnac and the Breton coast are both just minutes away and perfect for exploring on bikes. Out and about, there’s plenty to see, from the fascinating sea life at the Aquarium de Vannes, to the animals and birds at Parc de Branféré and Château de Suscinio, a majestic 13th century fortress.
Seven nights from 28 May for a family of two adults and up to four children staying at Les Menhirs will cost £472, including a return Dover to Calais ferry crossing.
Keycamp cycling lessons will be available to book through on-parc couriers. Sessions of one hour will run once a day for six days and are free of charge.
