Balance bikes are a great way to teach your little one how to ride a bike. They're an alternative to stabilisers that teach your child how to balance before they progress to pedalling, making the process much easier.
Also known as a toddler bike or training bike, balance bikes are the ideal bikes for 2 year olds, or for any children finding their feet. They come in a few different materials, with the wooden balance bike being a popular option. These are strong and sturdy, but light enough for your child to easily manoeuvre. The best balance bike for your up and coming cyclist is one they feel comfortable on. They'll start off by scooting along with their feet, before progressing to running and gliding with their feet off the ground.
