Hi everyone again. I am crazy about cycling. I actually met my wife during a cycling marathon. My boy is just a few months, but I am already dreaming about how I will teach him to ride a bike. Here is my question: What age is best to teach a kid to ride a bike.

Thanks

I'd suggest getting a sit on trike around one year so he can push himself around with his feet and get the hang of steering.  I think you'll know when he's ready to progress.  Some suggest not using stabilisers.  I've seen bicycles for 3/4 years old without pedals so they get the hang of balancing.  Wishing you lots of fun!

Hi,

I think age 3 onwards is good time to start. Can get a bike with stabilisers

I had a bike with stabilizers when I was 5, I remember how hard it was to change to a normal bike. 

On the other side, Is it safe to teach a child to ride on a bike without stabilisers?

If you can run to keep up with no stabilisers, then I don't see that they have to be used - ultimately can you keep your child safe? If so, then you could certainly consider not using them.
