Hi Mike

'Great Website'

I would like your subscribers to check out this YouTube video of a young boy from Denmark who has Dyspraxia. His parents have tried for years to teach him to ride a Bicycle like his peers. It wasn't until he learned 'Balance' and 'Co-ordination' on a 'Go Glider' (Balance Bike)he was able to transfer those new naturally learned skills to riding his bike:

You can imagine his parents elation at watching him enjoy his new found skill. More importantly the boost to his own confidence and ability.

Parents and teachers are unaware learning to ride a 'Bicycle' has many more benefits that just enjoying an outdoor activity and increasing fitness. Learning to ride a bicycle teaches the brain 'Balance' and 'Co-ordination' which translates in most classroom learning activities.

All children should learn to ride a bicycle and the Easiest and more importantly the Safest way possible is with a 'Glider Bike' as the child is in control at all stages and within their own personal capabilities!!!!
