The team did a zoom CPD today, covering communicating with young riders delivered by Elaine Warner, Head of children and young people’s services at CB Associate Training. Elaine worked for Go Velo for a number of years and has moved on to an amazing job with a superb training company. We are sad to see her go, but lucky to still be able to call on her for her amazing advice and support. Thanks Elaine, good luck for the future! ... See MoreSee Less

Our first Big Bike Swap went well, here’s a few of the children who came away with bigger bikes and got a quick lesson with instructors before they rode away confidently! All bikes were checked by a qualified mechanics and the unclaimed bikes will be offered to local primary schools for children who do not have access to one. Many thanks to everyone for helping to make this little experiment work! Seeing these happy faces on new bikes, I reckon we will do it again! #recycling #bigbikesswao ... See MoreSee Less

Adaptability: Working with SEND Schools

The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and understanding of each child's needs and disabilities.

About This Project

At Go Velo, we firmly believe everyone can benefit from cycle training, and we want children of all abilities to have this opportunity. We very much enjoy working with schools that specialise in providing education for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

 

Our team of instructors is experienced in delivering cycle training to all abilities, and we work hard to make our sessions appeal to everyone who wants to be a part of them. Getting everyone involved, so that they feel they are getting something from the experience personally, is our aim.

 

We can adapt our training programmes for different requirements, including working with smaller groups, and offering shorter, more frequent sessions.

 

 

Getting to Know the Individual

 

For SEND children, it’s important to make sure the training works for them and their specific needs.

 

It’s also about recognising that it’s important for them to feel and be part of the wider world they live in.

 

Cycle training can help build their confidence, as well as give them fundamental bike skills. It offers them a practical, helpful way of accessing their surrounding community safely and becoming more active in it.

 

The Go Velo approach is to gain a clear understanding of each child’s individual needs, and to make sure that while training involves groups, it also focuses on the various abilities of everyone within these groups.

 

 

Lasting Benefits

 

The health benefits of inclusive cycle training are not just physical. It can impact positively on wellbeing, as well as helping SEND children develop essential life skills.

 

We think cycle training should leave a lasting legacy, for the children, their parents, and the school.

 

“Their enthusiasm was both contagious and inspiring. Children loved them, parents are grateful and we are all looking forward to the next teaching session.”
