How to Learn to Ride a Bike in 15 Minutes
You can teach your child to ride a bike if you have two wheels and 15 minutes. No training wheels required.
It is a lifelong parental practice, which meant skinned knees and patience. We all saw a mother or a dad holding on his seat while running behind a kid who learns to ride. Then the adults let go and watched their children happily as the pavement opened up their chances. Nonetheless, there is a safer and better way for a child to fly. This approach teaches children how to balance rather than rely on you and your back. The best: 15 minutes can be taken. And the best part.
Forget about fitness rollers and other weird gadgets. You just need a kid ready to learn; a bike; a smooth, steep hill and a bracelet. No age is set for starting on 2 wheels, but children usually have adequate balance and coordination by 4 or 5 years of age. Search for a low-cost starting bike with a single gear and foot brake that needs less coordination than motorcycles with multiple gears. Make sure the bike is not big enough that it will have to strive to control it; while standing on the cross-bar with one inch to spare, it should be able to put both feet on the ground.
Find a Location
Choose a slopes about 20 feet high, angled enough for the motorcycle to run down but not so steep that it will be difficult for your child to keep it still on its feet. At the bottom there should be plenty of floor level — about 20 yards.
Safety and bike configuration test
The soft grass ensures that your skin’s knees are less likely, but your child needs a helmet anyway. Before you get going, stop baggy clothing and tuck in its shoelaces. This is the main design trick for your bike: lower the seat with a wrench so that your child’s feet will be able to rest flat on the floor as it rests.
Place the bike on the pedals stage roughly halfway up the hill. Put your child on the saddle, feet straight and arms slightly bowing, with the handlebar straight. Have him lift his feet and roll down the hill to control the speed and, if necessary, put his feet back on the ground. Go up and repeat the wheel, until you can put your child’s feet on your pedals. When your child has more confidence, walk up on the hill and repeat a few more times.
Include Braking and Steering
Braking and control incorporated. Tell your child to use the brake on the slope. Start with subtle turns to the left and right when she’s safe to stop. Run down the hill repeat and transform two or three times in every direction below.
Raise the Saddle and Pedal.
Lift the saddle high enough to let your kid’s leg bend a little when the pedal is at the end of a stroke. Start part of the hill upwards and have him on the coast before you reach the bottom of the hill. Cross your face with a proud smile, since now your child is riding a bike.
At the same time you learn cycling skills, it is important to teach your child the value of helmet protection. They note that using a cycling helmet will reduce the risk of head injury by 85 percent as the Commission for Consumer Products Health reports. Make sure that the helmet is not bent or skewed to one side if worn. The lateral straps should be a snug V under each ear, with the chin strap sufficiently tapered to allow only two fingers to slip under each ear. Most young children are putting their helmets behind, so make sure that they know the front and the back. Usually there is a sticker inside that points in the right direction.
