About:

In order to promote safer cycling from a young age, Limerick City & County Council would like to offer balance-bikes for your Crèche or Pre-School.

 

Balance bikes, also known as trainer bikes or toddler bikes have been designed for children from 18 months to 5 years old. These bikes have no pedals, so that riders can keep their feet on the ground as much as they like when using them. This allows children to learn to balance on a bike in a comparatively safe way. Children generally gure out how to use these bikes themselves, because learning to use a balance bike is like learning how to run or use a swing or slide.

 

Application forms, details, terms and conditions will be avialbel to download here shortly. If demand exceeds the available funds, funds will be awarded by lottery on November 4th 2013. Successful applicants will then have two weeks to return their receipts/invoices for reimbursement.

For further information, or to ask question about items raised here, please do get in touch.
