Did you know that here at Lloydminster Honda we carry Strider bikes?
For generations, training wheels have been the standard way of not teaching children how to ride a bike, welcome to the 21st century because things are about to change. To learn to ride a bike, you must solve two problems: the pedaling problem and the balance problem. Training wheels only solve the pedaling problem but learning to balance on a bike is much more difficult. This is where the Strider comes in. Did you know that Strider bikes have taught more toddlers to ride a bike more than any other brand in the world?
WHAT IS A STRIDER BIKE?
The best way to describe A Strider is that it is a No-Pedal Balance Bike. It is the perfect tool for learning to ride a bike, teaching balance, and instilling riding skills in toddlers, children, and adults of all abilities.
ARE THEY SAFE?
They are ultra lightweight and very safe and easy to control. They allow children to focus on the hard part of balancing first instead of learning how to pedal. Once a child has a full understanding how to balance on a bike,the chances of falling significantly decrease. Striders also are also free of chains, pedals, and protrusions that can harm a child.
Bonus: Research shows that learning balance and coordination with exercise jump-starts a child’s growth and development during the critical formative years of early childhood. Strider Bikes:
