OpentraX: So much more than just a ‘ride’

Bike riding has significant benefits for everyone 🚵‍🧠💪☀️😀

At a physical level, bike riding strengthens the body, improves balance, coordination and aerobic fitness 💪🚵‍♀️ At an emotional level, riding improves self esteem, ability to regulate emotions and concentrate 🧠✨

Riding requires the participant to navigate uneven terrain, hills and descents 🪵🪨🌿 This requires balance to keep the bike upright, coordination to navigate obstacles and strength to climb steep hills and position the bike where it needs to be. It also improves aerobic fitness in a fun way 🙌[/column_text][empty_space height=”40″][/column][/row][row css=”.custom_1636370936903{background-color: #21232b !important;}”][edgtf_testimonials skin=”light”][/column][/row][empty_space]Our program works with children and adults with disabilities such as autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, delayed development, cerebral palsy and motor difficulties. We use bike riding as a method to open up a world of freedom and possibilities for our clients 🚵‍♀️✨When riding, the client is completely independent. Our clients are often constantly being taken care of, and suddenly they are able to do things by themselves 💁

For some, riding a bike is like climbing a mountain 🏔 Being able to open up a world of opportunities for our participants is the most joyous experience 😀🤩[/column_text][empty_space][single_image image=”14154″ img_size=”large”][empty_space]Cycling has many health benefits including weight control, reducing blood pressure and managing blood glucose levels. It also assists with reducing the risks of chronic disease development and managing mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety 🧠🫀🫁

Riding a bike requires overcoming obstacles and facing fears. Every path and every rock presents a new challenge, and what was once impossible becomes possible. This gives out clients a sense of accomplishment, significantly boosting their confidence 😀🙌 Throughout the sessions, a relationship forms between the client and the coach. This connection of trust and confidence assists with developing social skills and interacting with others. This opens up many opportunities to participate within the community 👫👬👭[/column_text][empty_space][/column][/row][edgtf_elements_holder number_of_columns=”three-columns”][edgtf_elements_holder_item background_color=”#f2f1f1″ item_padding=”24.45% 20.3% 20.55% 21.7%” item_padding_1280_1440=”24.7% 11% 19.3% 16%” item_padding_1024_1280=”22.8% 8% 17.2% 11.7%” item_padding_768_1024=”24% 11% 15% 12%” item_padding_600_768=”15% 15% 10% 16.8%” item_padding_480_600=”15% 12% 10% 15%” item_padding_480=”18% 9.5% 10% 12.5%”][edgtf_section_title title_text=”Apply Now” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=””][empty_space height=”4px”][edgtf_section_subtitle subtitle_text=”Places strictly limited” text_align=”left”][empty_space height=”10px”]
