“Hi I’m Karen! Better known as Kaz or Kazzi. I am a nursery nurse, BMX racer and former mx rider. I founded Ready Steady Riders in September 2016, 6 months after buying my daughter a strider bike for her 2nd birthday. We decided life is better behind bars, and it’s been an awesome ride so far!
Riding a bike is a life skill, independence, a foundation for healthy, active lifestyles, and possibly the best gift you can give a child. This belief and value is at the heart of all Ready Steady Riders are and do” -Coach Kazzi
To a toddler a balance bike so much more than just a bike, it’s a valuable tool for learning essential life skills, and gateway to freedom and independence.
By providing children with a bike that they can ride easily from the age of 1 they learn to ride a bike as easily as they learn to walk. Balance, coordination, speed perception and control are all mastered before pedals are introduced. Balance bike riders bypass stabilisers and make the transition to pedals and brake levers smoothly and effortlessly.
