The first step to riding: Finding a sense of balance
Curiosity awakens as soon as kids can walk – at best in an environment where other kids are already running around. Through observation, inspiration is found and movement is learned! Pressuring kids into do something falls on deaf ears; they decide when the right time is to climb onto a balance bike. With its low seat and high handlebars, the balance resembles walking. Bit by bit, the steps on the balance bike become advanced:walking turns into scooting and scooting into gliding!
This learning process can be done on a smooth sloping area away from traffic and other stress factors. Though kids like to drag their feet to reduce speed, it's all about them learning how to really brake; this will make it easier for them to handle a “reall” bike later! By the way: we highly recommend wearing a helmet and riding gloves!
