Student research
Researchers at Oxford Brookes University are interested in how children learn to ride a bike. Parents/carers of children between the ages of 6-10 years who can cycle independently are eligible to take part. This will involve completing a short (10-minute) questionnaire to explore a range of factors that might influence how children learn. If you would like to take part, please follow this link:
