Q: Why should I use Professor Pedals™ for bicycle riding training?
A: We do things better, safer and with a more positive approach to learning. Our progressive program teaches students how to effectively and safely ride a bicycle. We developed activities, games, drills and related lessons to achieve great skills and results. In fact, much of the work is done off the bicycle to provide comfort and security to our students. Let's face it, riding a bicycle can be scary, but if students know their controls and abilities, their fears are greatly reduced. We are able to ease our students through the learning process while building up to more advanced skills. At the end of the process, our students will have a positive and comprehensive bicycle riding experience that will last a lifetime.
Q: How long does it typically take to learn to ride a bicycle with Professor Pedals™?
A: While results vary based on ability, maturity, coordination and strength, most students are fully trained in just 1-3 lessons.
Q: Should I take a 1 hour or a 1.5 hour lesson?
A: Student endurance and attention should be used to select the lesson duration. Sometimes age is a scale that is used and can be incorrect. Students under age 7 typically do best with our 1 hour lesson. Students 7 and older typically can handle the 1.5 hour lesson. It is not productive to overwork a student. This can be counterproductive. Your Trainer looks to always keep the environment positive and fun. Exhaustion can hinder these goals. If you have specific issues or wish to discuss a special needs issue please call us.
Q: What do you do differently?
