If your child can’t attend our Learn to Cycle sessions or you feel that they would benefit more from a 1 to 1 session. The 1 to 1 sessions aim to provide personalised coaching for children aged 4 years and above. These sessions can be provided in your own home or local park close to your home. Parents will need to be present during the sessions. £25 per session.
The course will focus on developing the following skills;
Our learn to cycle course is made up of 10 sessions: six 45-minute sessions for Level 1 and four 45-minute sessions for Level 2.
Level One covers the fundamental movement patterns, gross motor skills and dynamic balance are incorporated alongside an introduction to the balance bike. Children learn to pick up, manoeuvre, mount and dismount and how to ride the balance bike safely. Level One aims to build confidence in the ability to glide on the balance bike and how to stop in a controlled manner.
Level Two continues the development of gross motor skills, dynamic balance and co-ordination. The main goal is to improve the child's gliding, stopping, braking and turning skills, enabling them to ride solo on a pedal bike safely and with confidence.
