First-Timer Tips

For those of you working with your little ones and the Strider for the first time, here are some tips to keep in mind as you progress on your Strider:

  • Be patient
  • Keep the seat low if they're really young - let them get used to walking with something under them
  • When they're comfortable walking over the Strider, tell them to sit down on the seat This is where the balance starts coming into to play.
  • Raise the seat once they're comfortable sitting and using their feet
  • Be supportive - make a huge deal out everything they do on the bike. High fives work well.
  • Be patient
  • Put a hand on their back, don't hold the handle bars - they need to steer to help them balance
  • Be patient
  • Be supportive
Any additional tips from seasoned riders out there?
