Wooden Balance Bike - A great range of wooden balance bikes with adjustable seat heights perfect for children learning to ride a bicycle
Getting to grips with a wooden balance bike is far easier for toddlers than learning to ride a pedal bicycle. And once they get it there’ll be no stopping them. Designed as a replacement for tricycles and stabilisers (training wheels) they are safer and easier to manoeuvre and the focus is on balancing rather than pedalling. Hence the name.
A wooden balance bike is just like a regular bike but without the pedals. And many children, especially toddlers, find them much easier to learn on that a bike with stabilisers. Plus they tend to be able to travel much longer distances making a wooden balance bike a great addition to a family day out. They'll be running in front rather than dragging behind.
The concept is simple. Children learn to balance without the back up of stabilisers while they still have their feet free and close to the ground. Simply adjust the seat of your wooden balance bike to the right height for your child and they’ll soon figure out how to make it go simply by running along.
As they build up confidence they’ll start lifting their feet and freewheeling in no time. And the idea is that when they are ready to move onto a pedal bike their experience on a wooden balance bike will mean there’s no need for stabilizers and no need to run along holding the saddle for hours either.
How to measure a child for a wooden balance bike frame
If you are buying a wooden balance bike online then you want to know your child is going to be able to ride it when they arrive. Their inside leg measurement needs to be at least as long as the minimum seat height. And you can measure this by either standing them against a wall and measuring their inside leg or measuring in the inside leg of a pair of well-fitted trousers.
