Team GB’s Olympic legacy

With the Olympics taking place in Rio this summer, everyone has caught a touch of Olympic fever. Following Team GB’s huge successes in Rio, many families are being inspired to get active and healthy resulting in an increase in sign ups to sports clubs and gyms.

In particular, British Cycling had an impressively successful time at Rio 2016 with a whole host of gold medals from the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins, Jason Kenny and Laura Trott who this year became the first British woman to win four Olympic gold medals! With Olympic fever still gripping the nation, now is the perfect time to get your family healthy and active with a fun and physical activity like cycling.

Cycling is a fantastic way to get the physical activity needed to lead a healthy, active life. It is also an effective mode of transport, good for improving social and awareness skills, and a fun activity for all the family! Encouraging children to cycle from a young age can help to encourage them to stay active and healthy throughout their life in an activity they enjoy.

A child who enjoys cycling is more likely to continue to enjoy it as an adult and continue to keep fit and active. Balance bikes are a great way to get children cycling from as young as 18 months and started on their journey to independent cycling. Balance bikes help children master the basics of balance and coordination needed to progress to pedal bikes, without the need for bike stabilisers which, research has shown, can actually hinder a child’s ability to master these skills.

Could your son or daughter be the next British Cycling or Team GB star?
