Cycle Southend will soon be running Balanceability sessions.
Balanceability is the UK’s first and only accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children aged 2 1/2 to 6 years old and is supported by Olympic Gold medal winning cyclist Chris Boardman.
Balanceability combines unique ergonomic balance bikes with a programme of activity that builds confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balance skills, enabling young children to cycle without ever needing stabilisers.
After completing a Balanceability programme, your child will display:
- Increased confidence, self-esteem and resilience
- Physical improvement through the development of Gross Motor Skills such as balance, co-ordination, agility, core strength and flexibility
- An enthusiasm to put their learning experience into practice with raised interest in walks, cycling and family outings
Keep an eye on our event pages for course dates.
“Balanceability is the fundamental starting point for children’s cycling and an excellent opportunity to promote active lifestyles at the earliest possible age. I can see it also provides a natural lead into Bikeability for Schools and I would encourage all schools to give children the opportunity to use balance bikes.” – Chris Boardman MBE
