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.
“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.
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.
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.”
