Bikes are a rite of passage for kids. It’s their first version of (toddler-sized) thrills and independence and a great way to stay active. When choosing a bike for your child, you want to make sure to pick something sturdy and safe. In fact, you may find yourself purchasing several different bikes for your child as they grow.
Plus, you can start your child on a bike early on. Toddlers can learn to pedal or balance before their 4th birthday thanks for big wheel or balance bikes. As your child grows you can teach them on a bike with removable training wheels and watch with pride as they take their first ride without your guidance.
