Independent Riding

Transition to a 2-wheeler
Toddlers are usually old enough to begin riding on their own balance bike. Balance bikes teach toddlers how to balance which speeds up the progression to a two-wheeler with pedals. Balance bikes often shorten the amount of time spent on training wheels.

Homemade Balance Bike

Have your local bike shop remove the pedals (and crank) to create a balance bike of your own!

Before you know it, your child will be riding a two wheeler. It is a great idea to ride alongside your child. Check out our safety page and safe routes to school pages for more tips!
