The Bikeability Balance programme is the first module of Bikeability Plus, and is designed to help young children gain the confidence and skills required to ride a pedal bike independently, getting them off to the best start in cycling and assisting their ability to participate in Bikeability at a later stage in their school years. The training is aimed at children in Reception & Year 1 and aims to provide the children with basic balance and co-ordination skills they will need to ride a bike using games and balance bikes.
