Balance Bike Buddies

The smart way to learn how to ride a bike!

 

Our sessions for young children aged 2-6 years, are designed to build confidence and improve balance on bikes.

What are balance bikes?

Balance bikes are specially-deigned bikes without pedals that help young children (aged 2-6) to learn core skills such as balance, stability and control before pedalling.

Here's what our customers say...

" This has been a excellent course for my daughter. It has been a great confidence builder, as the weeks have past she has felt more comfortable in the group, and been happy to get involved without mummy's help. Her balance on the bike has improved enormously and she has enjoyed the sessions.

The teachers have been fantastic, great communicators and wonderful with the children"
