Come on, Maisie.
There's our bike.
Let's go for a ride.
This is Maisie and she is four years old.
Maisie's mum has hired a bike for them to ride together,
and they've come down to the promenade to try it out.
-Maisie, are you ready?
One, two, three...
This is a tag-a-long bike with a special seat at the back for Maisie.
# La, la, la, la, la! #
OK, we're doing all right, Maiz.
It looks like someone's happy.
Today, Maisie will do something new for the first time,
but what will it be?
This is Maisie's memory box.
It helps her remember all the exciting things that have happened.
See if you can remember what goes in it today.
After all that cycling, Mum and Maisie are having a rest.
-Did you enjoy that, Maiz?
I think you're ready for a bike of your own.
-What do you think?
Wow! Your own bike!
A bicycle, or a bike, has two wheels,
and someone who rides a bike is called a cyclist.
It can be tricky at first when you begin to learn to ride.
To start with, you can put two smaller wheels, called stabilisers,
onto the bike to help you find your balance.
Once you're ready, you can take them off.
It's important to wear a helmet to keep you safe when you cycle.
Maisie and Mum have come to a bike shop to look at bikes,
so she can learn how to ride.
-What have we come for?
-Well, that's good, we've got plenty of those.
-Do you want to come and have a look?
There are so many different bikes to choose from.
-Which one do you like, Maisie?
-OK. You fancy that one?
-What does Mum think?
-That one's a little bit too big.
-Yeah, I think that's too big.
-Just a little bit.
What about one with a football on it?
No? Not keen on football. And these are too small now.
-Yeah, you fancy that one? Let me help you.
Nice choice. It's got a basket.
That's it. Can you put your feet on the floor for me, please?
Hmm. Great style, but it's a bit too small for you, Maisie.
We've got one exactly like that, but bigger.
-Shall we build it in the workshop?
-Yeah, let's go this way.
Helping build your own bike? This is going to be fun!
Let's have a look.
-Look at that.
-That's a strange shape for a bike.
Do you want me to open the box?
You can open the box if you want to.
I wonder what's inside the little box?
-There they are.
Wendy fixes the handlebars on and tightens up the brakes,
while Maisie removes the protective wrapping.
-It's like opening presents.
Can you come round here and help me, Maisie?
Turn the bike upside down.
-Wendy puts on the wheels...
-Are you going to help me?
We need a different size spanner, Maisie.
Maisie, can you spot the right spanner?
-Does that fit on?
Yes, that's right. And we're going to tighten it up.
So, right the way round.
Righty tighty. That's it.
You're good at using a spanner.
-That's tight, that's good.
-Where's the bell?
That's the bell. Do you want to see if it works?
Nice bell. That's the bike finished.
The first thing in Maisie's memory box is her new bike.
Now Maisie needs some things to keep her safe while riding.
Are we going to try some helmets on, then?
Find the right size. Shall we try that one?
Oh. I think that one might be too big.
-What do you think?
-That's a nice bright one.
Ta-dah! Can you shake your head for me?
That's perfect. It doesn't move anywhere.
Do you want to have a look in the mirror?
-We've got a nice bright helmet so we can be seen.
What else would be good so that we can be seen?
-Lights! Shall we go and have a look at our lights
-for your bike?
-Yeah? Little one. Flash, flash, flash.
-Shall we try those? Excellent, OK.
-Lights are a good idea
so people can see you in the dark.
The second thing to go into the memory box is a helmet.
Let's have a look at our bike, shall we?
We've got our brakes to stop us,
our peddles to make us go forward...
Your bell to tell everybody that you're there,
and your stabilisers while you learn.
Shall we check the lights are working so people can see us?
-Look, it's flashing.
Everybody can see us now. Shall we go?
-Off we go, then.
What a lovely bike, Maisie.
Make sure you find a safe place to learn.
Maisie and Mum have come to the park
so Maisie can learn to ride her bike.
Right, now, while you're at the park, Maiz,
shall Mummy show you how to ride your bike?
Right, are you going to get on?
Maisie has put on her helmet and some pads.
One, two, three, go!
-Go on, pedal!
Pedal! Keep going!
Good girl. Come on.
-You're doing really well, Maisie.
-BIKE BELL RINGS
Turn as you get up here now.
You're cycling, Maisie - well done!
That's it, carry on, Maiz.
-Which way are we going, Maiz?
-Come on, then, pedal, pedal! Forward. Forward.
That's it, that's it.
Right, do you remember your brakes?
-That's it, it use them brakes, good girl.
You're really getting the hang of this now, Maisie!
-There you go!
See, look where you're going!
I want to get off it.
Keeping your balance is always hard at first, Maisie,
but your stabilisers stopped you falling over.
Did you enjoy riding your new bike, Maisie?
-Were you a little bit scared?
How about Mummy takes you for a real lesson?
-Eh? So you might feel better to ride your new bike.
That's a good idea, Mum.
Maisie has come to a class to learn all about balance,
as this helps you ride.
Hi, my name's Denise. Welcome today.
I'm going to teach you how to ride your bikes, to balance them,
and hopefully at the end,
you'll be able to start riding your bikes without your stabilisers.
The children do some balancing exercises,
and then try a balance bike.
Maisie, down the cones, and off you go. Good girl.
This small bike doesn't have any pedals,
but it helps you learn how to balance.
Your balance is getting a lot better, Maisie.
This is good fun!
At the end of the class, the children are given a certificate.
Maisie, would you like to come for your certificate?
Well done, high five!
Yay! Well done! You were excellent, good girl!
Well done, Maisie. This should help you ride your bike.
The third item into the Memory Box is the cycle certificate.
Maisie and Mum have come back to the park to get some more practice.
Off you go!
OK? Come round.
Pedal forward. Watch where you're going.
You seem to be balancing better since your lesson, Maisie.
You're doing really well.
I think you're getting this. I think we might take your stabilisers off.
It takes practice to learn how to ride your bike.
A park is a good place to start.
It's best to practise with a grown-up,
so they can help you and keep you safe.
Maisie and mum take off the stabilisers
to try and ride without them.
-Are you ready to give it a go?
-Off we go!
Off we go.
You can do it, Maisie!
All right, come on. Pedal.
Can you balance? It looks like you're almost cycling!
Pedal, pedal, pedal!
Well done, Maisie - that was a sharp corner!
You need to balance, Maisie.
It looks like the bike is tipping over!
After all that cycling, Maisie stops for a rest.
-Did you enjoy that, Maisie?
Yeah? Did you find it a little bit difficult?
Could we put the stabilisers back on?
Yeah, we could put the stabilisers back on.
Let's go for a ride somewhere else.
Putting the stabilisers back on for more practice
is a good idea, Maisie.
The fourth thing into the Memory Box is her stabilisers.
Maisie and her mum have brought their bikes to the promenade.
-We need to ride our bikes on the cycle path.
A cycle path is a special path that's especially for bicycles.
-Are you OK, Maisie?
Come on, Maisie!
Maisie has turned around to cycle back.
You're really getting the hang of it, Maisie!
A bit of practice, and you'll be able to ride without stabilisers!
-Are you enjoying it, Maisie?
I like riding my bike!
What a lovely place to ride beside the sea.
Today, Maisie got her first bike.
Can you remember what happened?
Let's have a look in the Memory Box.
First, Maisie went to choose a bike.
Next, she picked out a helmet and some lights.
Then, Maisie went to a cycling class to improve her balance.
Finally, Maisie and her mum went on a cycle together.
Today, Maisie got her first bike.
There's a first time for everything.
