Most children attend pre-school and then school from an early age

Most children attend pre-school and then school from an early age and the routine of travelling to and from school provides an excellent opportunity for both individual and family exercise. With young children an escorted twice-daily brisk ride may benefit both child and parent(s) as well as provide a positive parental role model for the child. With a balanced, enjoyable programme children can develop a repertoire of motor skills, achieve success at their own levels, and feel confident enough in their own abilities to want to pursue more active lifestyles.
