Teaching a child to ride a bike.

Advice needed on how to get my 7 year old off her stabilizers? It seems most Dutch children coming cycling out of the womb! Any tips or help would be, thank you.

We found that the easiest way was just take off the stabilizers, and they have no choice.

The longer you leave it, the harder it will get. My 2 boys where cycling at about the age of 4 without.

Find a quiet street, and just keep running beside your daughter until she has the confidence to go it alone.

Good luck.

Give your child a bike which is too small for them, no stabiliser, they then use their feet and legs to get their balance and learn how to move along. When they get the right bike for their age the have mastered the art of balance and they just take off, seems to work for our family.
