What is Balanceability

Balanceability is the UK’s first accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children aged 2½ to 6 years old The programme is a structured course available to schools, leisure centres and independent trainers.

Balanceability combines unique ergonomic balance bikes with a schedule of fun activities that build confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balance skills enabling young children to cycle without ever needing stabilisers.

What is a balance bike?

A balance bike is a lightweight, pedal-less child’s bike which facilitates balance and propulsion. Children run along whilst seated, push off the ground to create forward movement and use a combination of their feet- and hand-operated brake to slow down and stop safely.
