Balance-Bike Training

Manager: Lise-Ann Sheahan


The confidence building classes consists of 4 balance-bike sessions for pre-school children


The sessions are designed to be fun for the riders, while helping them to build skills and confidence on their balance-bikes. Experience says children who learn to ride on balance-bikes are more likely to progress to ride bicycles without the use of stabilisers. This initiative is being run in conjunction with the 'Balance-Bikes Initiative' for pre-schools which sees balance bikes being offered to interested pre-schools in the Limerick Metropolitan Area for FREE.

  1. Sophies Journey Foundation
