Benefits of a Bike Desk
- Reduce classroom disruptions
- Increase productivity and focus
- Improve efficiency in learning
While moving and learning is beneficial for all students, it can be especially beneficial to kinesthetic learners, students who have a difficult time remaining focused, and students with ADD or ADHD. We’ve even had teachers tell us that their worst students became their best students by simply pedaling while learning with the Unity Kids Bike Desk.
Alongside the behavioral benefits, there is a significant amount of research stating that the average student, regardless of age, needs to move their bodies every 20–30 minutes. Movement helps maintain focus, stores information into memory, activates both of the brain’s hemispheres, and can prevent feeling overwhelmed. By integrating pedal desks into the classrooms, students move and learn simultaneously, ensuring students achieve the proper amount of movement without taking time away from learning.

Pedal Desk Junior
I recently wrote a grant to purchase two of these for my resource classroom. I cannot say enough how much the kids love them, and they are a great tool for helping those students that just concentrate better when they are moving. They are very quiet, I do not hear them at all, and they do not disrupt the learning environment at all I wish I had an entire room full of these, they are amazing! The only drawback is that I teach middle school, so I have a couple students that struggle to reach the pedals, and then I have three boys that are too tall for their knees to fit under the desks. I will definitely be looking for funding sources to get some more of these in my room!
Thank you for your review and for the feedback!

My students ask daily to use the pedal desk while working in class. Students who need more movement - seem to focus better. The quieter, more introverted student tends to shy away from using it in front of peers I've noticed. One desk works quietly - the other one has pedals that make a loud squeaky noise that is very distracting to class. I'm awaiting a replacement part that will hopefully take care of problem.
Thank you for the review! Please let us know if you have any issues once you receive the replacement part.
