Bike Riding Program
Available in Erie County
You’ve heard the phrase, “It’s just like riding a bike.” It sounds easy. But do you remember learning how to ride a bike yourself? Was it easy? Did you fall? Cry? Promise that you would never ride one again? As a parent, you may now be facing the same dilemma, only now it’s your child who is learning how to ride a bike.
The Achievement Center offers an opportunity for children, ages 7 and up, to go beyond training wheels.
The Physical Rehabilitation Department conducts a four-week Bike Riding Program for children who are currently able to ride a bike with training wheels and are having difficulty learning to ride without them.
The bike riding program utilizes a series of activities on-and-off the bike. A parent must be available to stay with their child during the training sessions. The program addresses the two-wheel basics: balance, pedaling, steering, turning and safety. Training sessions are limited to eight children per session.
