Spring is here, the snow is melting, the roads are drying and warmth is creeping into the air. If you’re anything like us, you’re starting to put all your ski and winter gear away for the season and dust off your bike, because, after the streets, the trails will be dry soon enough. But what about your little ones? Do they know how to ride a bike? And, if not, do you want / are you ready to teach them? If you’re feeling anxious about it, don’t. If you follow a couple important rules, your children will be zooming along on their own in no time. This teaching guide from Bicycling should help you avoid some common pitfalls, as will this piece from REI. Key is to start them with a balance bike, not training wheels, not to use a bike that’s too big, not to hold the bike while they learn to pedal and not to push them too much before they’re ready. After that, it should all be cruising fun!
