How to teach children how to ride a bicycle

After parents buy a bicycle for their children, if they want to ride it out to play, they must learn the riding skills before they can get on the road safely! But for children who don't usually have a living space to play, it takes a little time to learn.

First pass: Feel the balance

1. Choose a bicycle where the child's feet can touch the ground after the seat is lowered. Remove the bicycle wheel guards. If you are afraid that the pedals will get in the way, you can remove the pedals. However, most children seem to have no effect on the pedals.

2. Find a flat grass with a slope of about 30 meters. The slope should not be too steep, the grass should not be too long, and the grass should not be entangled with wheels. At the same time, it can make a soft landing in case the child falls.

3. Wear a helmet, tie up shoelaces, tuck the trousers into the socks, and preferably wear gloves.

4. First push the car to a half-slope position, let the child ride on the car, touch the ground with both feet, then lift both feet, let the car slide down the slope slowly, don't help the child, tell him/her if Fear or unable to control, both feet can touch the ground at any time. At the beginning, he/she may ask you to follow yourself closely, but don't help, let the child find and feel the sense of balance. What you have to do is to give full encouragement and appreciation to every attempt and progress.

5. Repeat the slide, or play a slide game with your child, see which time you slide far, lower your feet in the middle to park less, and give a small reward (such as an ice cream or chocolate) for reaching the goal. Until the child can slide the entire ramp easily, without lowering his feet in the middle.

The second level: pedal sliding

1. Reinstall the pedals (if you remove them, pay attention to the difference between the left and right pedals). Let the child put one foot on the pedals and slide, and then both feet at the same time, until the child can start pedaling.

2. Repeat the sliding and encourage the child to pedal more (as he/she feels comfortable), and then increase the riding distance until the starting point is moved to the top of the slope. When the child is already proficient, raise the seat and let the child practice a few times. You can also add a few finish brake connections in the middle.

The third level: riding on a flat road

1. Find an open flat ground and practice from standing still to riding straight, stopping and turning.

1) First adjust one pedal to point toward the handlebar (2 o'clock direction). When you start to ride in this way, one foot can step on the pedal forcefully to provide power to the bicycle, so that the bicycle can move forward steadily, and the other supporting foot has time to leave the ground to find the pedal. When practicing this step, children often appear to be anxious to step on the pedal, often start reluctantly, and swing away. Parents should guide them to develop correct habits and start smoothly.

2) Learn to walk straight, raise your head and look forward, relax the next wall and knees, and kick the whole circle smoothly. If you can’t relax and your whole body is stiff, your child’s body will move with the rotation of the head when riding, and the car will sway and become unstable.

3) Practice parking, learn to brake both front and rear (if the car is dual-brake front and rear), tell your child that if you only brake the front brake, it will easily roll over the handlebar when the speed is fast. If you only brake the rear brake, the brakes will only be effective It can reach 20-30 whole vehicles, and it is easy to cause sideslip.

2. Turning practice

1) Slow down before going to the corner, and then slightly turn the handlebar while turning sideways slightly. When turning, keep your foot on the inside of the corner. When you can freely control, you can speed up the turning speed to practice.

2) Tell your children that you should ride cautiously in places with people and obstacles. Don't rush, stop or turn sharply, and pay attention to unevenness or obstacles on the road. Never ride on the road. If you can ride on the road when you reach the age, you need to be trained on road safety knowledge and gestures before you can go on the road. Tell your children that safety is always the first important thing for a little cyclist, and that safe riding habits will be useful for life.

Did you know that learning to ride a bicycle is a small milestone in the growth of a child. The child couldn't hold back his inner joy and wanted to announce to his family that he had grown up. He always rode and rode, unwilling to stop. While rejoicing for their children, parents should not forget the following precautions to ensure the safety of their children.

Parents, please pay attention to the safety of your baby learning to ride

1. Do not let go

Children can’t look around to make sure they’re safe, so accidents often happen suddenly. This requires parents to keep an eye on the child at all times, and even follow the child’s side in potentially dangerous places.

2. Don't go on the road

Let's take the children to the park and other safe and open places to ride. By the way, most of the traffic accidents encountered by children are caused by head-on collisions.

3. Check once every 1-2 months

Three-wheeled strollers and children's bicycles will rust and be damaged if they are not used. Checking the screws, brakes and oil once every 1-2 months is very important to ensure the safety of children. The car is running out of oil, so it takes extra effort to ride. Pay attention to always add oil to the chain and brakes. Check whether the front and rear brakes are in good performance. The screws will loosen due to vibration. Please check the tightness of the screws.

4. Keep it out of the rain

Rust is the enemy of tricycles and children's bicycles, so you must never let the car get wet. In addition, after washing the mud with water, it must be wiped dry in time.

5. Traffic rules by precept and deeds

Children grow up by imitating their parents. When parents educate their children to obey traffic rules, they must first set an example. In normal times, he truly achieves the exemplary behavior of "stop at the red light and go on with the green light".
