Learn to Ride a Bike

We offer learn to ride lessons for children and adults who have never ridden a bike before or who are returning to cycling after an extended period.

We are trained and experienced when working with riders who have delayed motor control, dyspraxia, autism and low muscle tone.

We develop riders’ fundamental skills of balance, steering, and controlled braking which will produce independence and confidence.  Lessons are fun and enjoyable, utilising teaching resources which make learning easy. Lessons are offered as a private or semi-private lesson.

Child one hour Private lessons (one rider: one instructor) $75 + GST Contact us to book a lesson

Purchasing the wrong size or style of bike can severely inhibit your ability to learn to ride a bike safely.

We aim to not only to teach riding skills but support clients to adopt a healthy exercise pursuit to maintain a healthy mind and body. The physical and social benefits of riding a bike are endless.

 

I just wanted to say a very BIG thank you for getting our daughter, Bella, up and riding. We have attempted this so many times but it always resulted in tantrums and everyone getting upset with everyone making it a very trying time and certainly not enjoyable for anyone. From the very first lesson with you, Bella has been a completely different child on her bike. She has been looking forward to her lessons and has become a lot more confident on her bike. Because you have taught her to be an independent rider, making her aware of every aspect of her bike and making her responsible for it, she has become a lot more confident and therefore a much better rider. We have learnt heaps too! I cannot recommend you more highly to anyone that needs help with getting their child up and riding their bike. THANK YOU AGAIN.
With kind regards,

What an amazing method to teach a child to ride a bike! Our son struggled to learn to ride a bike due to some delays in his motor control and balance. In three short lessons he is a confident and independent rider. RideAbility’s step by step method incorporating safety, road rules, donkey kicks, balancing frogs and exploding chickens resulted in my son being completely engaged and excited to attend his lessons each week. We were able to hire a wonderful bike for the lessons and have now purchased the right bike for him to continue his riding.

Can’t thank you enough.

Learning to ride a bike was on my bucket list and I am proud to say I have ticked it off!  Fabulous lessons which has given an old rider like me the skills and confidence to ride a bike.  You’re never too old to learn.  I high recommend RideAbility to help get you there.
