Cataloging Their Life

Teaching Them To Read A Bike

Make sure their feet can touch the ground if they’re sitting down on the bike. Tell them to begin to move the bike forward by pushing their feet against the ground (IOW, tell them to “walk themselves along on the bike.”) They will become very familiar with the momentum balance very quickly. Then, simply tell them to lift their feet and begin to pedal when they’re ready to. The classic style of teaching your kid to ride that we’re all familiar with – your hand gripping their seat and the other on the handle bar and you begin to push them to gain momentum and tell them to “keep pedaling,” is, in my experience, relatively ineffective. Using this method, your child will learn in under five minutes and you won’t have to touch them or the bike at all. This is very simple.
