Childrens Balance Bikes

Written by Lisa. Posted in Bikes

"We learn to crawl before we can walk so why expect children to ride a bike without having learnt how to balance? "

 A balance bicycle (balance bike, run bike) is a training bicycle that helps the rider learn balance and steering. It has no spinning pedals, no heavy crank set, no oily chain and no training wheels.

 The one skill that is needed to effectively learn to ride a two-wheel pedal bike is balance.   Children who use a balance bike for 20-30 minutes twice a week generally show the following  improvements:

        -Substantial improvements in both static and dynamic balance.
        -Substantial improvements in bilateral coordination.
        -Observable improvements in physical self-confidence.
