Cycling Get inspired!
With the Olympics taking place in Rio this summer, now is the perfect time to inspire a future generation of cyclists and athletes.
Congratulations to Laura Trott OBE from Team GB on her fantastic achievements at this year’s Olympic Games. Laura was part of the British Cycling team who won gold in the Women’s Team Pursuit and then went on to win a second gold of the games for the Women’s Omnium. These two gold medals, added to her achievements at London 2012, now make her the first British woman to win four Olympic gold medals!
We have been working closely with Laura Trott OBE since 2013 and our Balanceability programme has been specially designed to teach children the importance of keeping active and healthy from a young age through our fun courses. A child who enjoys riding their bike is more likely to cycle as an adult for transportation, recreation or even to become an Olympic athlete!
Nearly half of the UK’s children are unable to ride a bike by the time they turn six due to increased pressures of modern lifestyles. Through a fun and safe introduction to riding a bike, Balanceability aims to embed in the psyche of young children that cycling and keeping active is a part of life.
