How to Help Your Child Learn to Ride a Bike

Spring is on its way and it is a good time to think about what age is a good age to learn to ride a bike, and how to help your child learn to ride a bike. I can remember back to my childhood and loving to ride my bike, which I still have a love for today! I can also remember the day that I learned to ride my bike without training wheels. My best friend rode her bike without training wheels to my house with her mom, and then I was determined to learn as well. My dad held onto the bike with me and guided me until I was able to balance and ride my bike all by myself!

There is not an exact age that a child needs to be in order to learn to ride a bike; rather it is more when your child feels ready.  Riding a bike depends on your gross motor skills, balance, and coordination. Training wheels will help assist your child and help your child with balance while trying to understand the idea of riding a bicycle. It is important to stay near your child, once they feel ready to try to ride their bike without training wheels. Make sure your child is wearing a helmet and practicing on a soft surface, like the grass, which will help prevent injuries.
