Event description
Ready Set Ride supports a school to help children learn to ride a bike safely, increase physical activity levels and enhance well-being

About this Event

Through Ready Set Ride, schools can:

  • Enhance parental engagement
  • Increase physical activity levels at home
  • Enhance staff confidence and competence to deliver high quality PE/Physical literacy
  • Tackle inactivity and improve well-being

Outcomes and impact

Ready Set Ride:

  • Provides teachers and parents with the skills and confidence to give it a go.
  • Is a simple programme that connects schools and families to a shared activity and valuable life skill.
  • Helps children achieve their recommended guidance of 60 minutes of daily physical activity.

Young People:

  • Experience easy to follow steps, through playing fun games and activities, both on and off the bike, increasing confidence and skills.
  • Can start their cycling journey at any point. All activities and games are stage and ability specific and not age or time dependent, allowing children to progress at their own pace. At the end of each set of games children are encouraged to complete a series of challenges to recognise and reward their progress and achievements with certificates.

The programme enables every child to discover the joy of cycling and use it to explore their world through active travel, recreation or sport.

The FREE training session, available exclusively to staff in Wirral schools is targeted at teachers / TAs or other staff supporting learning in primary schools (e.g. coaches / mentors) with an interest in helping young people experience the joy of cycling.

As well as receiving expert tuition and resources, attendee schools will have access to a fleet of balance bikes to use for a two-week period during academic year 2019-2020 to deliver on-site tuition to their own pupils.

The course on 20th September will begin at 09:30 and finish at 14:00

Lunch and light refreshments will be provided. Further details will follow in early September
