Inspiring a Balance Biking Lifestyle!
There are dozens of choices out there, but choosing the right first bike for your child doesn’t have to be difficult. An increasing number of parents are opting for Balance Bikes as a training wheel alternative.
First off, every child is different. There is no “one size fits all” for children’s bikes. Only you and your child know what the best option is – and sometimes that means trying out a buffet of bikes. For many children, learning to ride a bike is downright scary. Exhilarating – but terrifying! Balancing on two wheels feels nothing like the walking your toddler just got used to!
Balance Bikes are suitable for children as young as 17 months, and as old as ten years. The goal of a Balance Bike is to get your child used to nothing but balancing. From balancing, they’ll start gliding, steering, and coordinating themselves around objects. These ultra light bikes give your child a sense of independence while learning new skills.
