At Het Taalhuis cycling lessons are given to all who want to learn how to ride a bike safely and with confidence. On Wednesdays from 09.30 am to 11.30 am lessons are for women only. And after the summer holidays of 2022, a mixed group will start on Thursday mornings.
We work with the method “I learn to cycle” developed by the cycling association Fietsersbond. Theory lessons are a fixed part of the cycling program. If the student successfully completes the theory test and can safely cycle the practical route, a diploma is awarded.
On the grounds of Cultuurhuis Bovendonk students learn to cycle under supervision. If a student has never cycled before, we start with balance bikes and work step by step towards the moment when the student can really cycle independently. If the technical skills are sufficient, students will ride on the bicycle paths and discover Roosendaal under the guidance of our volunteers.
For our lessons we use 2 types of bicycles: folding bicycles with folding pedals, and small city bikes with hand brakes. Unfortunately, these types of bicycles are difficult to obtain second-hand for a reasonable price.
If you can donate one of these types of bicycles, would you think of us please?
The first step to cycling lessons is to schedule an intake interview. During this conversation, the student's details are all entered and coordinator Anita explains all you need to know about Het Taalhuis.
