Balance bike training
About this activity
Suitable for early years and Key Stage 1 pupils. Supports the PE National Curriculum.
Balance bike training allows pupils to start developing their cycling skills. These bikes are light and easy to handle so children need little assitance using them, helping to build their confidence before moving on to a pedal bike.
You'll find lots of information and ideas for running balance bike training in TfL's Get Cycling curriculum resource booklet. It includes a teachers' checklist for training sessions and the equipment you'll need as well as six practical session plans and 10 classroom activities to support them.
Find out about funding for pool bikes and scooters which can support this activity and speak to your borough officer for guidance.
