Balanceability - Levels 1 & 2 explained

The Balanceability course is made up of 12 sessions: six 45-minute sessions for Level 1 and six 45-minute sessions for Level 2.

Level 1

Level 1 is aimed at children from 2½ to 4-years-old. At this level, fundamental movement patterns, gross motor skills and dynamic balance are incorporated alongside an introduction to the balance bike. Children learn to pick up, manoeuvre, mount and dismount  and how to ride the balance bike safely. Level 1 aims to build confidence in the ability to glide on the balance bike and how to stop in a controlled manner.

Level 2

Level 2 continues the development of gross motor skills, dynamic balance and co-ordination. The main goal is to improve the child's gliding, stopping, braking and turning skills, enabling them to ride solo on a pedal bike safely and with confidence.

Balanceability is a progressive 'outcome-based' learning programme,  where children are assessed at regular points throughout the course in order to monitor and measure progress. The speed of progression in children's motor development has proved to be hugely beneficial (see our case studies).

Working with schools as a Bike It officer, I have found that there is a real gap in cycle training for children below year five who can access a Bikeability course.

Balanceability offers the perfect solution to this gap in skill development. I was extremely impressed when I observed the course

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
