  • Strength:

    Building your capacity in physical strength while eradicating the cobwebs of mental fatigue.

  • Endurance:

    With every extra mile or metre, you're not just pushing your relative physical limits—you're extending the boundaries of your physical capacity and emotional stamina.

  • Gross and Fine Motor Control:

    From the macro movements of pedaling to the micro-adjustments of grip, gears and balance, RIDES© sharpens your motor skills on all fronts.

  • Balance:

    The dynamic act of cycling calls upon your core strength and coordination, cultivating an unshakable sense of balance both on and off the bike.

Why Settle for Less? Navigate Through the Maze of
False Solutions

Parents and Support Coordinators, we get it—the search for the right therapy provider and programs can feel like navigating through a labyrinth of options, each claiming to be the miracle solution you’ve been searching for. However, not all adventures are created equal. Here are some of the common pitfalls and false solutions out there:

Fitness Facades

Programs that focus solely on physical exercise, neglecting the critical facets of mental and emotional well-being.

Utilising generic video games that lack any therapeutic integrity or evidence-based impact.

Operations run by unqualified facilitators that don’t align with NDIS guidelines, putting participant safety and outcomes at risk.

Programs that offer no metrics or assessments to track participant progress, leaving you in the dark about real impact.

Offering simulated, digital experiences that lack the tangible, real-world therapeutic benefits that only hands-on activity can provide.

A one-size-fits-all approach that completely overlooks the individual needs and interests of each participant.

Third-party programs that offer no customisation options to meet the specific needs of your child or client.

Operations run by unqualified facilitators that don’t align with NDIS guidelines, putting participant safety and outcomes at risk.

A reluctance to switch out of ineffective programs due to comfort zones or inertia.

Choosing therapists or programs based solely on convenient location rather than proven effectiveness.

Misallocating budgets to treatments that offer little to no actual benefits.

Committing to multiple sessions without first assessing a program’s effectiveness, resulting in wasted time and resources.

The mistaken belief that the currently available subpar services are the best you can get.

Continuously investing in failed indoor therapies without considering innovative alternatives.

Shatter the Illusions: Mistaken Beliefs That Could Be Holding You Back

When it comes to navigating the often-complex world of therapy options, misconceptions can lead us astray. Unfounded beliefs can derail your participant journey before it even begins. Don’t let these common mistaken beliefs become roadblocks on your path to comprehensive well-being with OpentraX RIDES©.

Break free from these misconceptions and unleash the untapped potential within you—or the one you care for. With OpentraX RIDES©, you’re not just avoiding pitfalls; you’re paving the way for a journey into holistic well-being that’s as thrilling as it is transformative. Challenge the myths, question the status quo, and take the first pedal stroke into a brighter, healthier future.

Limited Options

Don’t be confined by the outdated notion that NDIS funding is only good for conventional, indoor therapies. RIDES© is NDIS-compatible, expanding your horizons exponentially.

Shatter the myth that NDIS funding lacks versatility. Your funding is more adaptable than you think, and can be a gateway to innovative solutions like RIDES©.

Reject the illusion of a ‘magic bullet.’ Complex health issues require nuanced, multi-faceted solutions, not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that hyper-focusing on one area of therapy will solve all problems. True wellness is a balanced, holistic affair.

Passive hope won’t yield active results. RIDES© encourages you to seize control, to be proactive about trading ineffective treatments for a proven, holistic program.

Cast aside skepticism towards cutting-edge options. RIDES© is grounded in evidence-based practices that challenge traditional therapy norms for the better.

It’s harmful and unjust to blame the individual for a lack of progress, they need therapy for a reason! RIDES© is built to adapt to diverse needs, removing the unfair burden of blame from the participant.

Erase the false belief that Support Coordinators have limited influence. Your role is pivotal in finding and shaping effective, enriching programs like RIDES©.
