Foster a love of riding early on with a quality bicycle. From a set of training wheels to their first 2-wheeler, you can find kids' bikes in styles your little ones will enjoy for years to come. Durable metal frames and rims deliver stability and support, while the tires promote a smooth ride as your little one cruises along. Look for features like padded, adjustable seats and grippy handlebars to help keep him or her comfortable during each adventure, as well as reliable brakes for easy stopping. While one kids' bike may have rear coaster brakes, another may have hand brakes, so choose the one that's easiest for your child to use. You can also make each excursion a joy by selecting a kids' bike decked in cool colors and graphics or a model with built-in storage, so your child can take a few items along for the ride.
Get your child into cycling at an early age. Sized for young children, toddlers' bikes often come with training wheels to help children get a feel for the bike as they learn to balance. However, some kids' bikes come without training wheels to help them learn to steer and balance right from the get-go. These are called balance bikes. Designed without pedals, training wheels or a drivetrain, balance bikes let children ride as fast as their feet can propel them along the ground. Some balance bikes offer a footrest for smooth coasting and balancing all on their own. While perusing bikes for toddlers, check out adjustable designs that'll grow with your child over time, as well as boys' bikes and girls' bikes with graphics from their favorite movies or comic books to help make each ride special.
