The good news is that you no longer have to worry much on the risks of getting your son hurt on his bike lessons with the help of the amazing Strider bike. This new type of bike is a perfect choice if you want to prioritize safety when your son learns balancing his first rides on a bike. It is otherwise known as a balance, walking, or running bike since it has no paddles and both of your son’s feet touch the ground. In this way, your son can feel secured and confident as he practices his balance skills.
Just take note that your son must not weigh more than 50 pounds, and his height should be less than 44 inches. This is to ensure that the Strider bike can maintain stability as your son rides it. The structure of the bike is made with durable metals and coated with fine and corrosion-resistant paint.
Another good thing about this bike is its puncture proof and Eva polymer tires. This type of tire can help you eliminate the problem and inconvenience with flat tires. The seat post is also designed to be adjustable with extra height so that your son can still use it as he reaches 4 years old. With regards to handlebars, the Strider bike also lets your son maneuver within the biking area. The handlebars are easy to turn and control so that your kid can easily adjust it.
Here are a few tips on how to teach your son how to ride the Strider bike comfortably and make it a fun experience for you and for your kid.
Before he actually starts learning make sure that the place you pick for him is a safe environment. Ideal place is where there isn’t a lot of cross traffic, and there are no distractions. A place where you can go with your son, and you feel comfortable. Finding a place with pavement is probably the best choice. It has a nice smooth surface to learn on, and it’s very easy to coast.
Make sure to lower the seat. It allows him when he is sitting on the bike his feet are flat on the ground. It will be more comfortable for him, and he will feel more relaxed.
When you found a safe environment, you want to get him just scoot along, so he is just going to feel what it’s like to be on the bike. As he is getting more comfortable, and he is riding a little faster you just want to monitor him as he is scooting.
Next, when he has gotten past scooting you want him to go a bit faster. You want him to get used to balance the bike. I’m not talking about a fast pace just a slow, comfortable smooth coast.
