Biking Readiness


Free phone consultations and shipping at Autism Coach
Is your child ready to ride a two-wheeler? The critical components of a child being able to ride a two-wheel bike without training wheels are balance and reaction time.
 
If you can play catch with your child in close proximity and they can catch balls that go off to the side they may have the physical coordination to ride a bike.  We do not recommend starting with training wheels because they can be become dependent upon them making the transition to a two-wheeler more difficult.
 
There are many ways to strengthen balance including, using our Balance Kit, a balancing toy called the Dizzy Disc Jr. or starting off with the child pushing off on a skateboard to improve balance.  Also there is a ball toy called a Bunjee Ball that is a ball with a velcro wrist strap attached to a bunjee cord that can be used to increase reaction time and coordination and is available in many toy stores.
