Balance bikes at Dudmaston, Comer Woods

Children riding balance bikes

Will you be able to keep up with your children once they’ve learnt to cycle? Come along to Comer Woods and borrow one of our free balance bikes – the perfect way to help your future cyclists learn how to ride, in beautiful, traffic-free surroundings.

Let’s get your future cyclists started

We’ve teamed up with British Cycling and HSBC UK to provide free balance bikes for our youngest visitors.

Cycling is an important life skill, and a healthy way to explore outdoors. We want to help the next generation’s cyclists learn to ride, starting their lifelong love of cycling in beautiful natural surroundings.

Turn up and ride

The bikes are available to hire on Saturdays and Sundays from the Shepherd's Hut in Comer Woods. Find us near Heath Barn, it's just a short walk from the car park.

Borrowing a bike is completely free but we will ask to retain your membership card or driving licence for the duration of the hire.

On your bike!

We recommend using the balance bikes in the meadow and along the Explorer trail. This 3.5km path is shared use so remember to look out for walkers and other cyclists.
