Bikes for 2–4 years
This is the start of the journey into the world of chain-driven bikes with pedals and brakes. From ages 2 and up, children are strong enough to learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle. However, it’s essential they have both the confidence and the motivation, so some children may be a lot older before they are ready to begin.
Parents, friends and schools can play a big part in creating an interest and readiness to learn to ride a bike for the first time. At around this age, 12" wheel bikes are the ideal size, and they’re available in a range of styles.
