In today’s world with technology making its way into our everyday lives, it is NEVER been important to encourage children to engage in physical activities that promote their overall development.

One activity that is proven to be very important for a child’s development is riding bikes. In a news article written by The Sunday Times education editor Bethany Hiatt, published the 25th of June 2023 (just this last week)

“learning to ride a bike has always been considered a rite of passage but experts are warning it’s a stage of life that a growing number of Perth children are missing out on”.

This early life skill is a source of joy and adventure for a young child and a skill once they have learnt will stay with them for the rest of their life.

Encouraging your child to ride a bike while they’re young helps to establish healthy exercise habits. Apart from being…

  • A fun form of physical fitness and beneficial for overall health.
  • It is great for muscle development/strength, body awareness.
  • Improves balance and coordination.
  • Benefits their learning and cognitive development

As a child pedals and manoeuvres their bike they engage various muscle groups in doing so also building cardiovascular endurance.

Riding a bike not only improves your child’s physical fitness but also. Riding a bike requires a child to be switched on and concentrate, make quick decisions and process information on the go. By navigating their bicycles and their way around children learn to assess risks, problem-solve and develop spatial awareness.

All these cognitive skills learned through cycling transfer into the classroom improving a student’s focus, attention span and academic performance.

Cycling is freedom for a young child to just jump on the saddle into the fresh air, sun and nature.

Riding bikes outdoors exposes children to nature which has positive impacts on:

  • Mental health, reducing anxiety and improving mood.
  • This is a great way for children to reduce stress, release energy and emotion.
  • Gives your child personal freedom, independence and self-confidence
  • Improves motor skills when riding a bike.
  • Cycling promotes their sensory perception in a wide range of aspects.

By simply going from destination A to B your child will use many senses throughout their journey. Watching and listening carefully to many sounds smells colours all these sensory skills will help your child learn to navigate traffic hazards.
