Students at Priory Community School are the first in North Somerset to benefit from the after-school activity.
BMX and mountain-biking could also be a future part of the Active Travel To School scheme which encourages pupils of the Queensway academy and parents to travel by bike instead of by car.
Rob Berry, head of the lower school at Priory, said: “Cycling is such a healthy form of transport and we hope this new activity helps to make it even more accessible.”
The project is a partnership between UK charity Sustrans and North Somerset Council, as part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, Travel West initiative.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of our school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting our school.
It would be great if you could complete the survey – inspection teams rarely receive more than a handful of replies to Parent View, and it would be useful to Ofsted and to us if a significant number of our parents completed the survey.
