The art to riding any bike is ultimately learning how to ‘balance’. A balance bike is quite simply a ‘bike without pedals’, it looks very much like a regular bike but without pedals and sometimes without the breaks. A balance bike is a great first bike for toddlers and young children taking their first steps into learning to ride a bike. Many parents favour a light weight balance bike such as the Safetots own brand. Balance bikes are ideal first bikes for toddlers as they are designed with young children in mind with simple structures to allow for safe, fun play as they learn to ride their first bike and build the confidence and independance to move onto a bicycle.
