The benefits of bicycles without pedals for children
Bicycles without pedals to improve the balance of children
If we want to leave our children a better world and instill a more sustainable way of life, it is convenient to familiarize them with the use of bicycles from an early age. If when they are babies we can take them with us in the bicycle chair, when they get a little older, they need to have their own bicycle.
We all know that it is not easy to learn to ride a bicycle. The child does not have balance and does not know very well how to handle himself without falling. For some time we have been seeing a new method to learn to ride a bicycle much more effective than the tricycle or bicycles with rollers. These are the so-called bicycles without pedals.
What are the use of bicycles without pedals for children?
The traditional method for teaching children to ride a bicycle was the rollers. A method ineffective because it did not develop the sense of balance and as soon as we removed the wheels, the learning process started from scratch. The secret to riding a bicycle is balance and that is precisely what we should teach the child.
Tricycles were also very common as a previous step to the bicycle. The child was driving safely on his tricycle or even on his motorcycle, but the problem at the time of taking the bicycle for the first time persisted, that is, the child had not developed the sense of balance. At this point, the experts realized that bicycles without pedals were ideal.
The bicycles without pedals are designed for children from 2 years old. Some people wonder how it is possible to ride a bicycle without pedals. Well, these bicycles without pedals must be adapted to the height of the child and it is the child himself who drives with his feet, which must be able to rest on the ground without difficulty.
The advantages of bicycles without pedals for children
The main advantage of bicycles without pedals compared to traditional methods for learning to ride a bicycle is that the child acquires balance naturally and progressively. When walking on his bicycle, the child swings safely and acquires the safety he needs on a bicycle.
Bicycles without pedals also enhance their psychomotor skills and improve their sense of direction. And most importantly, the child learns from a very young age all the advantages of enjoying the bicycle with autonomy and independence. Logically, no child should go with the bicycle without pedals without the supervision of an adult and it is also convenient to wear a helmet, although the risks are minimal.
Once the child has acquired safety on his bike without pedals, it will be time to move to a bike like his parents. It will be time to buy the child a brand new bike with pedals or use the one you already have if it is the type of evolutionary bicycles, because in that case you just have to add the pedals
