The course is a simple learn to ride programme that connects schools and families to a shared activity and valuable life skill. Provides teachers and parents with the skills and confidence to give cycling a go. The course will help schools to work with families and parents as part of helping children achieve their recommended CMO guidance of 60 minutes of daily physical activity.
The course will include:
- Easy to follow steps, through playing fun games and activities, both on and off the bike, increasing confidence and skills.
- Children can start their cycling journey at any point. All activities and games are stage and ability specific and not age or time dependent, allowing children to progress at their own pace.
- At the end of each set of games children are encouraged to complete a series of challenges to recognise and reward their progress and achievements with certificates.
- To enable every child to discover the joy of cycling and use it to explore their world through active travel, recreation or sport
