How does Balanceability work?

Balanceability comprises of structured lesson plans that help children develop gross motor skills, spatial-awareness, dynamic and static balance and bilateral co-ordination, along with the necessary skills to make the transition from a balance bike to an ordinary pedal bike in a safe and fun way.

Balanceability is a two-level programme with each level being delivered in six 45-minute sessions. It can also be run as a continual programme for schools delivering a weekly activity.

Balanceability is “outcomes-based”, meaning the programme is flexible and not specific to age. Our Instructor training helps teachers to develop an understanding of the developmental stages which aids the delivery to children.

Level 1

Level 1 is aimed at children aged 2½- to 4-years-old. It focuses on movement patterns, gross motor skills and dynamic balance using a balance bike. Children learn how to pick up, manoeuvre, mount and dismount their bikes and then learn the skills to ride a balance bike safely.

Level 2

Level 2 is aimed at children aged 4 to 6-years-old and continues the development of gross motor skills and dynamic balance. The main goal is to improve the children’s gliding, stopping and braking skills to enable them to ride solo on a pedal bike safely and confidently by the fifth or sixth session.

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 is the fundamental starting point for children’s cycling and an excellent opportunity to promote active lifestyles at the earliest possible age.
