Kids Who Ride: Why Balance Bikes Are Better Than Normal Bikes

        In life, I believe one of the things one must learn how to do is ride a bike. Not only is it a fun activity but when end-of-the-world scenarios actually happen (you never can tell!), and all the cars in the world are out of gas, then you have a chance of survival with riding a bike.

        Joking aside, I feel childhood is incomplete when you miss out the experience of going around the village with your friends, riding a bike. And while training wheels might be the more conventional way of learning how to ride, there's one more way that seems to be really effective in teaching kids how to balance. And that's the balance bike.

        With a balance bike, kids learn how to balance (of course), basically because instead of focusing on how to pedal, they focus more on how to balance. Which is really the most important part anyway. And the sooner they learn how to balance, the sooner they can learn how to ride a real bike!

        The first time Rain tried it, she easily learned how to use it. No starter manuals needed. Just watch them sit on it, and do all the work from balancing, and maneuvering. As opposed to tricycles wherein parents need to do some pushing. And the kids are just there sitting pretty. (Scroll further down for her video!)

        Also, I was delight to learn that Balance Bikes are also a lot safer than the usual bikes. First of all, they're lighter.  Another thing is that they are easier to maneuver. Whereas tricycles easily tips over when on unbalanced surfaces.

        After doing research, I learned that because kids take control of learning how to balance on a balance bike, that they get a sense of achievement and self confidence. And that makes a whole lot of difference and makes a great impact in their characters as they grow up.

No more ouchie and scars!

        See her first day with her new balance bike here! Still needs a bit more practice but like I said, I didn't teach her at all how to use it except to say "push with your feet!" And she got it instantly! Didn't fall even once ;-)
