A few basic prerequisites are necessary for success: the child must be 8 years old or over; ambulatory; must have good cardiovascular fitness and the ability to pedal a bicycle for 45 minutes a day for 5 consecutive days; able to keep their feet on the pedals and maintain pedaling; able to keep their hands on the handlebars and turn; able to see sufficiently to avoid obstacles and maintain a path of travel; willing to follow instructions; and motivated to learn to ride. Our experience has shown that behavioral considerations are extremely important. A child may be physically able to ride, but if she/he cannot be persuaded to get on the bike and follow our instructions, they may not succeed.
