PrePedal early years cycling

Join Push, Scoot and Pedal for a great, fun way to get kids active and help keep them fit with our dedicated train the trainer courses aimed at yearly years workers.

Gone are the dreaded stabilisers, as the use of balance bikes removes the need for most children to use them when they progress on to conventional bikes with pedals.  Because PrePedal uses these specialist balance bikes that don’t have pedals it means that children can concentrate on the core skills of balance and gross motor control needed to perfect riding without having to grasp propulsion, foot and leg positioning at the same time. Making learning to ride lots easier.

With the help of the PrePedal characters, who bring these session alive, children will learn to ride without even realising it - no fear, great fun, bags of confidence and a fantastic sense of achievement.
