Helping children to learn to ride

Teaching a child to learn to ride a bike can make you feel like a superhero – and will open up all sorts of adventures for your family. With HSBC UK Ready Set Ride the process is as simple as playing together, with fun games designed to break learning to ride into easy to follow steps.

Your child will learn at their own speed, so don’t worry if they don’t pick it up straight away! Learning on a suitable bike is important to make the process easier, where our guide to balance and pedal bikes includes handy tips on buying a bicycle that will be a good investment.

We want you to have fun and would encourage you to get creative by adapting the games using stories and role play. At the end of each game is a challenge to complete in order to unlock a personalised certificate. Why not go on an adventure together and put each of the skills into use?
