Shame your lad cannot join a club yet, our local GoRide takes from 6 with an adult but have we have had younger turn up as long as they can cope.
Just found out it takes from 6 years. He's 6 in December which means the next season starts from March so he'll be there for sure.
I think I read that you're based in the northwest. Not Lancaster area with the salt Ayre cogset cycling club by any chance? That's our local youth cycling club if it is. I'll contact them sooner if it is.
My on started with Ribble Valley jnrs, it was the local club around at the time, their evening off road sessions have now stopped, but there is a Saturday morning mountain bike ride out where there is some road riding required between segments. It is all heavily marshalled at road crossings. Occassionally a younger child comes along but they have to have to be competent at cycling.
We did used to attend Salt Ayre on Thursdays and see the Cog Set youngsters but it got too much on the weeks when t'other half had to be at 4am on alternate weeks.
Good luck and best wishes when your youngster finally gets his cycle club wings.
