How it works

Step 1: Begin with a Balance Bikes

Our session kicks off with the use of balance bikes, designed to develop an understanding of balance and coordination in a fun, safe and supportive environment.

Step 2: Transition to Pedaling

As the learner gains confidence with balancing, we then transition to a regular bike without stabilisers. This step starts to introduce pedaling and turning skills.

Step 3: Gradual Independence

Our approach encourages gradual independence. We progressively remove support, allowing the learner to master unaided riding with a focus on balance and control.

Step 4: Conquering Gears and Brakes

Once unaided riding is achieved, we introduce the essentials of gears and brakes, promoting advanced control over speed and terrain.

Our coaching team ensures a positive and empowering experience for your child, cultivating essential biking skills in a safe and enjoyable setting. We look forward to embarking on this exciting biking journey together!
