Bike riding can  sometimes be a struggle to learn and some children need a little more support than others. It is also such a great skill to have; it's fun, kids can do it on their own and with their family and friends, and it helps build independence in later years. If your child is struggling, we have a program designed to help turn bike riding into a successful and fun activity.

The format for this is 3 x 90 minute sessions, with one session each day. The group will be a mixture of fun indoor and outdoor activities with members of our clinical team guiding your child. 

Each child will need to bring a bike in good working order (with training wheels, if required) and a helmet, and a parent / guardian will be required to attend and support their child to participate in the program.

The cost of this program is $495.
