Little Children And Biking

Nov 21, 2007
Children all over the United States and the rest of the world want to learn how to ride a bike. They are so eager to learn how to ride a bike that they would do just about anything to learn. They might even be brave enough to wish that they were big enough to be able to climb up on the seat all by themselves and learn how to ride by being the teacher if they could.

For parents figuring out what the right time is to get their child a bike is one of the hardest things for a parent to do. If they know their child and their limitations, the answer will come to them at the right time because they will know in their heart that their child is ready to learn how to ride. Child are only safe on bikes when they can fully understand the importance of safety rules. That is another thing that parents have to worry about when their child wants to learn how to ride a bike.

When that time comes the child's parents will go and get that child their first bike. There will probably be a great deal of celebration about it because getting the first bike only happens once in a lifetime. Then the parents will begin teaching their child about the bike that they will ride, and when they are sure that they fully understand what all of the parts do they will let them mount it for the first time.

While they are learning about the bike, they might question why there are extra wheels on the back wheels. The child will learn about training wheels and how they are an added safety feature that will keep them from falling over. The child will be thrilled to hear this because they probably have worried about falling over for some time and knowing that they have an extra set of wheels to keep them safe makes riding their first bike more pleasurable.

The most appropriate age for a child to learn how to ride a bike with training wheels is about four or five years old. That child will be so excited to get their first bike and to will concentrate real hard on learning how to ride it. Parents know that teaching their child to ride a bike will require a lot of patience but when they see the bright shining eyes of their child they know they are ready to do it.

Parents will relax considerably when their child takes their first solo ride. They know that they have trained their child to the best of their ability and that they have fully explained all of the safety precautions that a child must follow in order to be allowed to continue riding on a day-to-day basis. They know where they can ride and the areas that are off-limits to them at such a young age. Children at the age of five never really wanted to ride their bikes in the streets anyway.
