Balance Bikes for Toddlers

September 30, 2018

Brooklynn and Harlym celebrated their 5th and 4th birthdays at the beginning of this month! For their birthdays this year, we decided to get them bikes. I have so many memories riding my bike around the neighborhood as a child, going on family bike rides, and learning to ride my bike as a 4 year old. I want my girls to have the same memories.

My husband and I looked into several different brands for bikes and ultimately decided we wanted to get Brooklynn and Harlym balance bikes! Balance bikes are designed with only foot propulsion to teach the fundamentals of riding. When the fundamentals of balance and steering are mastered, transitioning to a bicycle with pedals is easy. We found Strider Bikes online and ordered them for the girls!

We got the Baby Bundle for Harlym. It can be used starting at 6 months (which is why we chose this one for her – it will be the perfect “hand-me-down” for Deuce and Bronx)! It comes with a Rocking Base that can be used before they’re ready to ride. It’s perfect for kids up to age 5.

We got the 14x for Brooklynn because it’s perfect for kids ages 3-7. It comes with removable pedals that you can add on once your child is able to balance!

The girls are absolutely loving their new bikes and have been making beautiful memories!! They are getting more confident – day by day – and soon enough, we’ll add the pedals to Brooklynn’s bike! It makes me so happy to watch them laugh and smile as they ride their Strider Bikes.

When learning to ride, a child needs to experience how leaning and steering affects the balance of the bike. By starting out on a balance bike, your child will develop balance, coordination, and confidence! Strider also offers 16″ and 20″ balance bike models for older kids, adults just learning to ride, as well as those with special needs. Strider Balance Bikes have turned individuals with Down syndrome, autism, low muscle tone, poor balance, arthrogryposis, and cerebral palsy into bike riding enthusiasts!
