Bikeability Learn to Ride Training in 2018
The cycling instructors from My Journey who normally teach Bikeability to children at schools in the Borough, have also been busy last year, helping younger children to master the skills of riding a pedal bike.
The team have been running Learn to Ride sessions after school every Thursday at the FBC centre in Finchampstead, for children of school age who are struggling to ride a bike with pedals. The key to their success is to use balance bikes first (bikes with no pedals) to teach the children how to balance, then they progress to riding on their pedal bikes – without the need for stabilisers.
During 2018, 141 children have attended the Learn to Ride sessions and 95 of them were successfully riding after just one or two sessions. This represents a 67% success rate.
