Teach Your Child To Ride a Bike


Hi, my name is Britton and we’re gonna teach
you how to ride a bicycle today! The first thing you need to do is take off
your bicycle pedals but we’re not going to do it in this video because it’s some work,
but you NEED to do it in real life. The second thing you need to do is lower your seat so
that both feet can touch the ground. When you’re getting ready to learn how to
ride a bike, you need to head to a quiet street or empty parking lot that’s relatively flat. The first thing you need to do is learn how
to balance, and you do that by coasting. The best way to learn how to coast is to put your
feet on the ground and push yourself along your parking lot or street. To coast, you
put your feet on the ground and push off and if the pedals are in the way, it’s gonna hurt
your feet and you’re gonna get scraped up and it’s really annoying. You may be wobbly and unbalanced at first
but then you’ll get the hang of it. Practice the coasting and keep on doing it until you’re
good at it. After you’ve gotten the hang of coasting, then we’re gonna learn how to steer
by doing an obstacle course. You can make an obstacle course out of anything from cups
to crackers, and sometimes it’s fun to just run over the crackers! We’re gonna learn the basics of steering by
putting the cups in a straight line and just turning a little bit to get around them. The
next step of the obstacle course is to make it wider and you turn more. The wideness helps so that you can do sharper
turns while you’re riding a bike. Then, after you master the obstacle course, you raise
the seat up, put the pedals back on, and give it a shot! You could learn to ride a bicycle in three
or four hours of one day, or it could take ten or fifteen minutes each day for over the
course of a week. There’s no right or wrong amount of time that
it takes to learn how to ride your bike. The main thing is to have fun and to learn how
to ride a bike!
