A 6 week bike program to teach children to ride their bike with or without training wheels to improve their overall balance and coordination. This will be run by two physiotherapists with knowledge in different childhood conditions and experience with teaching children how to ride their bike.
Children will learn the basics of riding a bike, starting from the bikes function to independent riding with or without training wheels.
