• How are the cycling lessons conducted?

Our coaching approach is instructional, highly structured, and tailored to each student’s primary learning mode to ensure effective learning. Here’s an overview of our methodology:

  • Instructional Approach: We teach precise body movements and techniques to achieve balance before introducing pedalling. This ensures a strong foundation and better understanding of cycling fundamentals, with instructions customized to suit each student’s primary learning mode—whether visual, auditory, or kinesthetic.
  • Clear Guidance and Proper Instructions: Unlike outdated methods relying on trial and error, we provide clear guidance and instruction. We don’t simply hold students and hope they figure it out; instead, we prioritize mastering balance through structured drills tailored to each student’s preferred learning mode.
  • Small Group Instruction: Our group lessons accommodate a maximum of five students per coach, allowing for personalized attention and correction as needed. Coaches adeptly identify and cater to each student’s primary learning mode, ensuring that remedial drills provided to address specific challenges effectively promote balance development.
  • Continuous Practice and Correction: Students engage in consistent practice while receiving ongoing feedback and correction from our experienced coaches, who strategically adapt their teaching style to align with the primary learning mode of each student. This iterative approach ensures steady progress and skill refinement, optimizing the learning experience for every participant.
  • Where are your classes held?

Classes are conveniently located near the Tiong Bahru MRT station, which provides easy access.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, and cancellations are sometimes necessary. If you need to cancel your lesson, please inform us at least 48 hours before the scheduled lesson to avoid any charges. Cancellations made within 48 hours of the commencement of the lesson will incur charges of $60 per hour unless under extenuating circumstances. We require evidence such as a medical certificate or a doctor’s memo for cancellations due to medical reasons. Your understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.

  • What should I wear during lessons?

For optimal comfort and safety, wear shoes and choose a comfortable top, shorts, or exercise pants/tights for ladies. Padded cycling tights are recommended to minimize discomfort. Please refrain from wearing Crocs during lessons.

  • What should I bring for lessons?

To ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience, bring hydration, a towel, and a change of clothes.

  • Physically, what should I anticipate during and after lessons?

As your body adjusts to cycling, you may experience some expected discomforts, such as potential bum soreness, scratches on the calf area if unprotected, and general fatigue from exertion. Chafing around the inner thighs and crotch area may also occur.

  • I wish to improve my balance. Can I still succeed?

Absolutely! Our approach focuses on gradual motor skill development, making it suitable for individuals of all skill levels. Each step is carefully designed to build confidence and competence.

  • Is the training bicycle provided?

Yes, we provide training-specific bicycles sized according to each student’s needs. Having the correct tools and instructions is essential for effective learning, and our coaches ensure you have everything you need to succeed.

  • Do I need to bring safety gear?

While our technique is exceptionally safe, we provide essential safety gear for adults. However, children must bring their safety gear, as quick learners may become aggressive on two wheels.

  • Are students insured during the lessons? 

While we prioritize safety, it’s important to note that we do not provide student insurance coverage. Our release form, which students must sign before participating in any activities, acknowledges the inherent risks associated with various sports, including cycling. This form absolves our organization of liability for any accidents or injuries that may occur during the lesson. We encourage students to obtain personal accident coverage to safeguard themselves against unforeseen circumstances while engaging in activities with inherent risks, which may extend beyond cycling to other sports and physical activities.

  • Do you guarantee results?

Success is assured with the right attitude towards learning, motivation, and mindset, coupled with our structured approach. With sufficient practice and motivation to keep trying, we will guide you through the process, regardless of the physical, mental, or cognitive challenges. Our head coach holds several certifications and possesses a wealth of experience to provide top-notch coaching services with unparalleled quality. Results come with the correct stress-free coaching pace, ensuring optimal learning and development.

  • Can I bring my bicycle?

It is highly recommended that you bring your bicycle significantly if it is sized to your specifications. Familiarity with your equipment can enhance the learning experience.

  • Can you coach a child with special needs?

Yes, we can assist children with special needs, including those attending APSN schools and other educational institutions like Pathways in Dover Court International and Delta Senior School. However, it’s important to note that the involvement of parents is crucial in this process. Parents must be hands-on and actively participate in their child’s learning journey, as progress may vary depending on the individual child’s response. We will work closely with you to tailor our approach to suit your child’s needs and abilities. Our experienced coaches will guide you through the process, adjusting techniques and defining checkpoints. Consistent practice at home is essential to maximize progress and ensure the success of the coaching process. With a proven track record of successfully coaching children with various challenges, including those attending specialized schools, we are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment for every child.

  • Am I too old to learn to cycle or balance?

You’re always young enough to learn! Our structured approach simplifies the learning process, making it accessible to individuals of all ages.

  • How young can they start?
  1. Children are never too young to begin learning how to ride a bicycle. Starting with engaging activities at home can help ease them into lessons and foster bonding time with parents.
  2. We kindly ask for your understanding in setting expectations with young children. Children aged 4 and 5 may struggle with repetition and following instructions independently, so parental assistance is often necessary. Attention span and the ability to execute instructions can be challenging at this age, but we strive to guide them at a manageable pace.
  3. The primary factors influencing results include general motor skills, fear levels, internal motivation, receptiveness, and willingness to persevere. Our instructional approach promotes independent learning while providing guidance and corrections as needed. Building confidence is critical, and we aim to minimize handholding to encourage self-reliance.
  • Who are the cycling lesson coaches?

Our coaches are certified by Sports Singapore SG-Coach and are highly experienced professionals. They possess extensive experience coaching students of all ages and abilities, ensuring a positive and effective learning environment. It’s worth noting that our coaches are full-time career coaches with years of coaching experience under their belt. Unlike part-time instructors, they are dedicated professionals committed to providing top-notch instruction and support to all students. Rest assured, your learning journey is in the hands of experienced professionals passionate about helping you succeed.

  • How are the cycling lessons conducted?

Our lessons employ a proven balance model, focusing on developing essential motor skills and muscle memory before advancing to more complex techniques. Each lesson is tailored to the individual’s needs, ensuring a personalized learning experience.

  • Can the cycling lessons be conducted at a location of our choosing?

We can arrange lessons at alternate locations, although we recommend our Tiong Bahru location for optimal learning conditions. Additional charges may apply for travel time.

  • Can the cycling lessons be combined into a 2-hour session?

Yes, upon request. However, it’s important to note that exhaustion and discomfort may occur, especially for younger students. It is recommended for ages 7 and above.

  • What if we need to learn in the 2 lessons?

Our structured approach allows for self-practice as homework if objectives still need to be met in the first lesson. Additional lessons can be scheduled as required, ensuring students progress at their own pace.

  • Why is the lesson only an hour long?

Based on extensive experience, children’s focus declines after 45 minutes, leading to diminishing returns in learning capacity. Our lessons are designed to maximize learning potential within this timeframe, ensuring a practical and enjoyable experience for all participants.

  • What if my child is cautious and clumsy? Can I do anything about it?

It’s natural for children to develop at their own pace, and some may exhibit caution and clumsiness in physical activities. However, there are ways to support their development and build confidence.

  • Developing Cognitive Motor Skills for Kids: Children gradually develop the physical skills needed for their adult lives, including gross and fine motor skills. Engaging your child in physical activities like sports and outdoor play can help them reach developmental milestones.
  • Confidence: Children with weak gross motor skills may feel uncoordinated and avoid activities that require them, leading to missed opportunities for skill development and social interaction. Encouraging participation in physical activities can boost confidence and socialization.
  • Physical Activity: Engaging in physical activity from a young age promotes overall health and development and strengthens bones and muscles, laying the foundation for an active and healthy lifestyle.
  • Optimizing Early Brain and Motor Development Through Movement: Providing various movement experiences for preschoolers stimulates problem-solving abilities, critical thinking, and academic concepts. Movement-based learning is an effective medium for young children’s cognitive development.
