Plymouth youngsters learn the art of balanceability - and how to ride a bike.
YOUNGSTERS at Beechwood Primary School have been learning how to ride their bikes without stabilisers.
The youngsters took part in a six week 'balanceability' course to help them stay stable on their wheels.
Jane Dowrick-Kessell, the teacher who spearheaded the programme, said: "It's been a really good initiative.
"At the end of the six weeks the parents were invited along to see the children. There were definitely a few proud tears."

As well as learning to ride their bikes, guided by instructors Roy and Karen, the 57 youngsters have also come on in leaps and bounds in their confidence, social skills and ability to listen.
Mrs Dowick-Kessell added: "It's the first time we have done anything like this before but we will do it again."
