Learning to ride a bike

Post  x-Kell-x on Thu Sep 20, 2012 10:05 pm

I'm after some help, We brought Charlie a bike for his birthday, he gets about on it quite well, but he only pushes with one foot, and the cycles the peddle back wards again and then pushes again on the foot, he doesn't push the peddle all the way round using both feet. I cant figure out how to get him to do it properly, I've tried pushing his feet while he's riding to show him how to do it but he just doesn't get it at all lol

I am so pleased that you have posted this as I thought it was just us! Lily does exactly the same and we've spent ages trying to explain that she needs to.push her foot all the way round but it's so hard to explain! She goes half way and then backwards. We've just decided to leave her to it until it clicks! X

From what I've seen its one of those things that just clicks.

On another note did you go straight to normal bikes? We're going to get Jamie a balance bike and I guess if they've had that then pedalling is going to seem a little strange to them after that

Ok I'll just leave him to it then I suppose! He gets where he needs to be so there's no real problem!

Liberty we got Charlie a cars balance bike which he still loves now, the only problem with then is that when they get confident and go faster they use there shoes to stop as there's no breaks, Charlie has worn out two pairs of trainers doing that.

It just clicks one day.

Rich couldn't ride his bike till he was 9, couldn't figure it out, he's still not great on it tbh

But my nieces both can at age 4

I think it is just practise kell. When I got Andrews bike for his 3rd birthday he did exactly what Charlie is doing a sort of half pedal. Andrew learnt to peddle backwards so he got the movement but it is easier backwards as they aren't actually moving the bike if you get me. Then it just clicked and he could do it properly a little while later.

Sophie can pedal properly but she has been practising on Andrews bike and on the ones at the child minders. He will get there :-)

Liberty yes Andrew and Sophie went straight to a 12 inch bike. :-) x

Imogen and her friend (same age) do the same thing! Imogen will also do the half pedal thing then jump off push the bike over and yell 'oh no i fell off it's broken!'. I'm just leaving it now and will let her practise when she wants cause nothing i say seems to help, she'll get there eventually.
