The first step to riding a bike is practicing with preschool and toddler tricycles
Preschool playgrounds and community safety centers oftentimes have tricycles for little ones to ride on. These specially sized bikes have three wheels to prevent tipping, low seats so feet reach the ground and solid tires so little feet don't get stuck. Riding tricycles outside is a good way to burn energy during the day and keep children physically active. At community safety centers the tricycles help with Safety Town that is designed to teach children the rules of the road. There can be various street signs used as children ride bikes on pretend streets. Signs like "stop," "yield," "railroad crossing," "one way" and more. In addition to preschool and toddler tricycles you will find scooters, wagons, bike helmets, tricycles for children with special needs and even bikes where one child can cart around another.
