Giving your child a bike (Part 1)

Bicycles help children develop physically and mentally. Giving your baby a bike is a way to make him/her responsible and learn to be independent. Give your children compliments when they reach a small effort. If your child is afraid to learn to ride because he/she is afraid of falling or injured, you should not scold him/her. Never make a cycling session into a will of war. If children are not happy, they will never learn good things. Please accompany your child and help him/her overcome psychological barriers.

  1. Prepare suitable children’s bicycles

The best age for children to ride from 3 to 6 years old. If your baby is from 3-6 years old, it’s best to buy a kid bike with two extra wheels designed behind. Let your baby easily control and balance on the bike.

If your baby is over 6 years old, give him or her a two-wheeled bicycle (without two extra wheels). At this age, babies are sturdy enough to be able to handle when they fall. Drive a two-wheeled bicycle from the first day, help your child know carefully and concentrate more while driving.

During this stage your child will learn to ride a bike very quickly. Taking a baby to a children’s bike shop choose to buy a one with a bright color that fits your baby’s personality. This will make your baby feel excited from the beginning with a new friend. Don’t buy a baby bike that has a size bigger than your baby’s height and think he or she will be able to pedal in the future when he or she grow up. You can ask a technician to lower the saddle to a small amount to help your baby easily stand up. When the baby kicks in, he or she will raise the saddle to the correct height.
