How to Ride a Balance Bike for Beginners

Select the Bike

First of all, you have to find a perfect balance bike that suits your height, weight and other requirements. Find a bike that is not much expensive and suitable for beginners. Find a bike with a single gear and a foot brake as it requires less coordination than a bike that has a hand brake and multiple gears.

The bike must not be too big that you face problems controlling it. The height of the bike should be suited to the height of the rider so that he can put both feet on the ground while standing over the crossbar.

Select the Location

Next, you have to find a suitable place for riding the bike. You can choose a wide field that has a large open space. In this place, you will be able to ride freely. You won’t face any obstacles.

Or, you can choose a slope about 20 feet high that’s angled enough to coast the bike down. But don’t choose a location that is too steep that you find it hard to hold the bike with your feet. There should be enough level ground at the bottom, so you don’t get in any accidents.

Safety Check and Bile Setup

Safety should be kept in mind before you start. You must wear a helmet for best safety. Then set up the bike to your needs. Lower the saddle with a wrench so that you can rest flat on the ground as you sit.

Roll Away

About halfway up the hill, place the bike on the paddle level. Then put on the saddle with your feet on the ground, hold the handlebar straight and arms slightly bent. Lift your feet and roll to the bottom of the hill.

Control the speed by putting your feet back on the ground if you need. Get back up off the hill and do the same again and again until you can keep your feet on the paddle while going down. When you are sure that you have got the point, then move higher on the hill and repeat the process a couple more times.

Add Braking and Steering

Apply the brake after the hill level is over. When you can stop the bike safely, then you can work with the steering to turn to the left and right. Repeat riding the bike down the hill and apply the brake and also try to turn left and right. Do this until you get it fully under your control.

Raise the Saddle and Pedal

Raise the seat up again to allow a slight bend in your legs when the pedal is at the bottom. Go up the hill and coast to the bottom of the hill. When you come to the level area, try to ride the bike. Do it until you can successfully pedal the bike. When you can pedal, you have now learned how to ride a bike.
