Getting out and about on bikes is a great way for kids to explore independence, improve learning development and mental health along with opportunities to make social connections and improve physical fitness.
At Kidz Concept Store, we believe very strongly that all children should learn to ride a bike. Yes there may be a few wobbles and scrapes every now and then, but once mastered, riding a bike is a skill that stays for life.
Keeping physically active has never been more important and The Australian Guidelines For Health recommend that children should engage in at least one hour of vigorous activity every day to stay healthy - riding a bike is a great way to meet these requirements.
Riding a bike is also great for the environment. Active transport such as cycling instead of driving reduces carbon emissions, eases traffic congestion and eliminates parking problems. Teaching your children about the benefits of bike riding on the environment, will mean our future communities are greener and healthier.
Children who ride bikes have a greater understanding of their community and their local area. Children who are driven everywhere are often unable to accurately understand how the streets in their community are connected. Kids who ride bikes have a better understanding of their local geography.
Check out our great range of balance bikes to get your kids into the fantastic, lifelong skill of bike riding.
