Learning how to ride a two-wheeled bike can be a  great challenge for your young one,  or it can be as fun as bouncing on a trampoline (both are great exercise btw).  The task of learning to ride a bike can be made effortless for your little monkey.  Family Biking Victoria Enter stage left…the Balance Bike.  They are fun, easy to use and I would bet just about any child as young as two can learn to ride in under 2 hours.  Both of our kids used strider bikes at the age of 2 and they picked up the motion easy peasy. The biggest issue with the traditional way of learning how to ride a bike… the way you and I learnt is that new bikers need to learn to balance and pedal at the same time.  Not sure about you… but multitasking has never been a strong suit of mine.  This is why buying your child a balance bike has such an advantage over conventional bikes.  There is no need to pedal… mostly because they are pedal-less the kids push and coast… push and coast ( I have said that a couple times over the past few years).   The bikes are also lightweight, low to the ground and easy to use.  The kids can always touch the ground and don’t worry about falling.   Types of Bikes Some come without brakes and others come with a hand brake.  Some are wood, some are not.  No matter what kind of balance bike you choose (Go With STRIDER) your little monkey will learn to improve their motor skills and have fun with an alternative to the traditional pedal bicycle. Some benefits for you and your child:

  • Refined motor skills
  • Confidence and independence
  • Enjoyment and exercise
  • Develop a healthy active lifestyle at a early age.
