The Runners-Bike Junior mini balance bike is low to the ground and super easy to balance. Little feet are right there to stop any potential falls; in fact with a balance bike kids have little fear of falling or feeling out of control.
Balance Bikes are gaining in popularity as they provide young children with a two step approach to learning to ride a bike. The hardest part of bicycling is learning to balance on two wheels. When young children have to coordinate balancing and pedaling it can get quite overwhelming. With a balance bike they only need to master balance. Their feet are low to the ground, so even if they tip sideways they can easily stop a potential fall.
Balance bikes are easy to use. First kids walk the bike forward. As they experiment with speed and momentum they learn to lift their feet and coast for longer and longer periods of time. If they need to put on "the brakes", they just lower their feet!
Aside from being great fun, cycling on a balance bike provides absolutely fabulous exercise, both cardio and strength building.
Balance bikes give young children a great sense of freedom and mastery. Most children learn to ride them quickly, and then they are off and rolling!
