Balance Bikes


Balance bike classes from March 2015
Learning to ride a bicycle is one of life’s milestones, providing children with their first taste of mobile independence.
• Is your child stuck on stabilisers?
• Maybe you haven’t got anywhere to ride safely…
• Don’t worry…..we can help.
Our Balance-ability classes are delivered by myself a fully qualified instructor in safe environments designed to provide children with the best possible start in cycling. We are there to help children – and parents – who may be finding the process of learning to ride a little daunting.
We want children to have the very best experience of cycling.
Group learning based on structured ‘sessions’ (including lots of fun) will help speed up the progression of a child’s level of skill.
This is a Balance-ability program which focuses on establishing fundamental and secure balance – which is the most essential part of riding a bicycle.
By establishing the fine and gross motor skills that are required for cycling, children will progress naturally through the key stages and experience the joys of riding a bicycle throughout their early childhood and beyond into teenage and adult life.
We utilise Balance Bikes throughout the program in order to teach children the fundamentals of balance, core stability, gross and fine motor skills and the essential confidence that comes with the process of learning a new life skill.

Level 1

Level 1 is aimed at children aged 18 months to 4 years old. It focuses on movement patterns, gross motor skills and dynamic balance using a balance bike. Children learn how to pick up, manoeuvre, mount and dismount their bikes and then learn the skills to ride a balance bike safely.

Level 2

Level 2 is aimed at children aged 4 to 6 years old and continues the development of gross motor skills and dynamic balance. The main goal is to improve the children’s gliding, stopping and braking skills to enable them to ride solo on a pedal bike safely and confidently by the fifth or sixth session.
