Learning to ride a bike is often our earliest and proudest moments of childhood, we share this with whoever helped us. As a parent if you have tried and tried but struggled to teach your child to ride you may ask or pay someone else to help. What if you could learn to be a better teacher and become the one to share the memory that lasts a lifetime with your child?

What we'll deliver:

  • A series of resources to empower parents to be more confident when teaching their child to cycle.
  • A digital community of active parents will be created as a forum from the course.

Why it's a great idea:

Do you remember the day you learnt to ride a bike? It’s often one of the earliest memories people have, I remember being excited and a huge sense of achievement. It symbolised growing up and was probably one of my first steps towards independence. I also remember who helped me, it wasn’t my parents or grandparents, it was my uncle. I don’t remember the hours of practice at the park my mum and dad had put in, much to their annoyance. Their annoyance made me wonder if there is a different way of doing things? Learn to ride sessions are very popular and I can see why parents with huge time constraints and or lack of confidence to teach their child to ride a bike may decide to pay someone else to do it for them. Get it done, tick it off the list and move on! Have we lost the opportunity to create a memory, one that lasts? I have a formula that will enable parents, grandparents or careers to learn how to teach their child to cycle stress free.

Steps to get it done:

  • 10 backers will show significant demand and the course will be finalised
