4. Assisted launch control
It is the type of scene you see in the movies, the kid on the bike and the parent pushing them by the seat from behind to give them a boost. Why is it such a cliché? Because it works! Helping your kid to gain some momentum by giving them a push from behind will get them through the most difficult stage of balancing on their bike and the first few pedal strokes.
5. Don’t forget proper protection
One of the worst things you can do when teaching your kid to bike is get them into bad habits, and the worst habit above all is not wearing proper protective gear while biking. Too often today this important fact is overlooked, as many believe that on quiet streets or on their own property the risks of injury are low, but that is simply far from the truth.
6. Finally, have fun
The whole point of teaching your kid how to ride a bike is to give them a chance to experience the pleasure of cycling, so try and make sure that you keep the atmosphere joyous and pressure free, as any type of stress will only make learning more difficult.
No matter the age of your kid, teaching them to ride a bike will provide your family with wonderful opportunities to cycle and explore the world together.
