Learn to Ride for Reception Children

Go Velo’s Learn to Ride course can rapidly build confidence and cycle skills in even very young children.

About This Project

“They had great fun, and it was amazing how much they learned in just a few sessions.”

 

How young can you learn to ride?  There isn’t necessarily a best age for children to learn to cycle, but the earlier they do, the more ingrained good habits are likely to become.

 

Go Velo’s Learn to Ride course can rapidly build confidence and cycle skills in even very young children.

 

Reception-age children in Pendle gained two-wheeler skills in this way when we visited their school.

 

 

Developing Gross Motor Skills

 

“They are managing to ride their bikes independently.”

 

Learn to Ride helps children develop gross motor skills. These are the physical skills that require whole body movement, and involve the body’s core stabilising muscles.

 

Developing these skills helps with daily activities and functions, such as walking, running, jumping and sitting upright. These skills also include hand-eye coordination.

 

Gross motor skills development can also have an impact on how well children can navigate their environment.

 

 

What Learn to Ride Offers Children

 

Go Velo’s Learn to Ride courses for children gives them a structured, supported means of developing gross motor skills and building their self-confidence.

 

By affirming their own abilities, they grow their self-esteem.

 

The bike course supports and encourages key physical, personal, social and emotional skills.

 

  • In participating, children develop their co-ordination, control and movement. They learn how to manage space and handle equipment.

 

  • They learn the importance of physical activity.

 

  • The course helps them develop a positive sense of themselves, including how they describe these experiences and refer to themselves in a positive way.

 

  • They begin to develop the confidence to try new things, with a growing belief in their own abilities.

 

Learn to Ride can leave a positive legacy for future development.

 

“Since the course, parents have reported that their children have used their bikes at home to push on with their newly-gained skills.”
