4th Gear

What will my child learn? 

  • How to brake in a controlled way in difficult environments. 
  • Weight transfer – how to move their bodies to maintain their balance and control of the bike when they’re riding uphill, downhill or around corners. 
  • The Track Stand – how to stop the bike without putting your feet down, and balance for multiple seconds. 
  • Faster and more complex skills including faster reaction times and increased spatial awareness. 
  • How to ride in challenging and unfamiliar environments – how to use all of their knowledge and experience to tackle different riding surfaces confidently.  

How will this help in real life? 

  • Your child will be able to ride a 90-degree corner using the right technique, at an appropriate speed. 
  • They’ll get used to avoiding debris, pedestrians or other obstacles on the road or path.
