How do you teach kids to ride a bike?

How do you teach kids to ride a bike?

Safety first: Insist upon a helmet each time your child is on the bike-with or without training wheels.

But for a normal child this distance fall is extremely unlikely to do anything more than a big bump and bruise superficially, and possibly a tiny headache for a few hours. ...Read more
