At CycleFox we believe that learning how to ride a bicycle is something that all children should be able to do. Private cycling lessons for children can help with:
- Children, who for all sorts of different reasons, have never learnt how to ride a bicycle.
- Children who are not able to move beyond the stabilizer / balance bike stage.
- Children who can ride but don’t have very much control of the bicycle.
- Children who can cycle but now need some additional instruction to cycle safely on the roads.
Why use a cycling instructor?
A qualified cycling instructor can often get children cycling pretty quickly, some of the advantages of cycling lessons are:
- Professionally qualified cycling instructors know how to teach the specific techniques to enable your child to learn how to cycle quickly.
- Sometimes it helps to ask someone independent to help teach your child to cycle, it can avoid that parent / child frustration that can sometimes creep in to these situations (I can remember this well when my Dad tried to teach me how to drive!).
- Private cycling lessons for children should follow the national standard framework of outcomes – this basically means that your child is taught a range of different skills in a progressive way that enables your child to gain effective control of their bicycle. Really good control skills enables children to be much more confident when cycling and, crucially, effective control helps keep them safe.
- A qualified cycling instructor will be able to give you a qualified opinion over whether your child is ready for cycling out on the road – this can help with reaching decisions over the journeys you allow your children to cycle.
