Our Glide Bike Classes for Kids are the perfect solution for parents looking to help their children develop balance, coordination, and motor skills and get them riding their bikes stabiliser free.


Based on the Balanceability programme, our structured class provides a fun and safe way for children to transition from a balance bike to a pedal bike.

Our coaches are patient and attentive and passionate about teaching kids to ride their bikes without stabilisers.


They have undergone CBS checks and additionally, all of our coaches are qualified instructors, ensuring that your child receives the best possible instruction and guidance.

Russell James
Founder and Head Coach

Russell has loved cycling ever since he can remember. From wobbling on his first bike, a Raleigh budgie, as he tried to keep up with the bigger children on Grifters, to buying his first racing bike for £10 with all the 5p/10p pieces his Grand parents had saved up for him. Russ loved racing BMX’s as a young man and then experienced riding a mountain bike off-road for the 1st time in the Red wood forests of California which inspired him to become a mountain bike guide.  


Russell's passion for cycling has taken him on journeys and adventure around the world and is now taking that spirit into teaching children how to ride their bikes without stabilisers. 


After both his children learnt to ride on a balance bike, he wants to get children into riding their bikes as early as possible.

Russell has taken his experience and what he learned as a Balancability graduate and created a comprehensive class for learning to ride a bike that promotes success in one single class.

“Highly recommend these classes. My daughter was a slow starter and was shown patience and encouragement throughout and in no time was riding her bike with confidence. She absolutely loves riding around now. Thanks for being a brilliant teacher.”
