How to Ride a Bike

Our site is dedicated to beginner cycling, and you don’t get much more “beginner” than actually learning how to ride a bike. I have recently had the opportunity to review an e-book called Learn to Ride a Bike that is designed to help you teach a child to ride a bike, but it can also be used by adults trying to learn how to ride a bike step by step.

How to Start Cycling

With two small kids of my own, I have struggled with how best to teach kids to ride a bike — and also how not to ride a bike.  I’ve only recently finished teaching my kids, and frankly, we had some difficult moments that could have been avoided if I had read the advice in Learn to Ride a Bike.  The author of the book has 20 years of experience in teaching others (including people with special needs) how to ride bicycles.

While Learn to Ride a Bike is written from a perspective of teaching kids how to ride a bike without training wheels, the principles in the book just as easily apply to the topic of  how to ride a bike for adults. One thing I really like about the book is the format: it is told in an easy to read story that covers all of the basic principles, followed by a checklist to give you quick reference to the essentials for teaching someone how to ride a bike.  Topics covered include:

  • Preparing the bike.
  • Getting the rider ready.
  • Choosing the place to ride.
  • How to start from a stop.
  • Proper positioning.
  • How to encourage the rider.

As I mentioned, I truly wish I had read this before teaching my children to ride without training wheels.  I have to admit, there were times I pushed too hard and felt bad about it later.  Some of the ideas in Learn to Ride a Bicycle could have helped me to avoid that tension.

Purchasers of the book also get a bonus e-book on how to have a great family bicycle outing.  This is also well thought-out and should save a lot of stress on your family bike outings.  The bonus book goes into detail on topics such as:

  • What to prepare the night before.
  • Proper food and drink before and during the ride.
  • Preparing your equipment.
  • Preparing the route.
  • What to check on the bike.

It also has a quick-reference checklist to make sure you don’t miss anything.  I sincerely believe that this bonus e-book alone is worth the purchase price — as it will save you time and hassle when trying to spend some quality family time on a bike outing.

So, whether you are looking to teach children to ride a bike, or to teach yourself or another adult how to ride a bike, you should check out Learn to Ride a Bike. Full disclosure: if you click through my link to purchase, I will get a referral fee (at no extra cost to you) that helps to keep this site going (thanks!).
