5.4.2 Introducing the session – aims and expectations

Start by introducing yourself (and any co-instructors).

Talk about the overall aims of the course, before sharing what you are going to do in the first session. 

Explain to the riders that there will be four key skills they will focus on when they are on their cycles. And that they will be able to improve their cycle control through fun activities and games.

You should find out what riding experience they have and explain the differences between mountain biking/BMX and road riding. Give them an idea of the sort of riding style expected on this course. 

Try to take care of admin tasks (such as registers and checking consent forms) before the session so you can get straight on to the exciting stuff.
