Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.
It appears that The Bikes College must be doing some things right as we teach some new things these days. We met T., 6 years old, and her parents a few weeks ago when they collected one of our bikes. T. was able to ride but seemed extremely stressed and unable to focus to ride long distances. Upcoming Beavers bicycle riding test was not going to be an easy ride.
T.’s parents got in touch with The Bikes College to seek help in making T. much confident and comfortable on her bike. We met T. and her dad in a local park with hills, paved paths, tight turns, trees slalom, grass ditches, cobble stones and plenty other obstacles. She was not confident enough to ride without close supervision on anything but grass and in straight lines preferably. And within an hour…
T. was able to ride comfortably; following a few simple but important pieces of advice she flew through the trees slalom like a champ. You can see her amazing work in this short video on our channel.
It is important that we give our little riders time, attention and a few little tips so they can become independent riders clocking their first yards with confidence and comfort.
It is important to start well as riding a bike is like… well… riding a bike. Once you learn you will never forget it.
