David Dansky, the man who trained me to be a cycle instructor, and introduced me to games like ‘stay in the box’, has released a new book. Now I am not suggesting for one moment this is a curl up on a rainy Sunday afternoon kind of book. This book is a teaching resource.
It would be quite easy to scoff at the relevance of games when teaching cycling, but until you have played them, let me tell you, you really wouldn’t know.
Doing the ‘slow race’ in the playground will leave you faced with a row of gappy tooth smiles and more importantly a bunch of kids who understand how to balance on their bikes.
If you do teach, this could be a valuable resource. I also reckon it could come in pretty handy at a kids party*, tire them out and quieten them down.
You can buy this book for a tenner, here.
ps: bike games are just as good for adults, ‘foot down’ leaves me in fits of giggles.
