Abstract

This is an overview of the three year funded pilot study. 35 children took part, 17 in the cycling group and 18 in the non cycling group. Children kept diaries about their cycling experiences and took part in an interview. Strength changes in quadriceps and hamstrings were demonstrated in the adapted cycling group, the non cycling group got weaker. Changes between the 2 groups were not significant. The children enjoyed the cycling experinces and those who had not tried it explored this and 11 of the 18 children took part in cycling during or after the study was completed. The numbers were small and the cycling took place for a short period. Further study is needed on a larger sample size to measure if this change continues.
