    How to teach a child to ride a bike:
  • Be safe. Always wear a helmet.
  • Don't use training wheels - they hinder learning and teach bad habits!
  • Be sure to have kids on a bike that allows them to touch the ground flat footed. (Lots of parents buy bikes too big to learn on hoping they'll grow into it.)
  • Don't hold the bike or the handlebars when you are helping them get started. Guide them by holding their back or shoulders.
  • Encourage kids to look straight ahead, keep pedaling and keep their arms straight in front of them. The bike goes where they are looking.
  • For timid beginners, try removing the pedals initially and allow them to use the bike as a seated scooter until they get comfortable. Then add the pedals.
  • Lots of encouragement and high fives! Make it fun.
