Kids Bikes - Teaching your kids how to change gears
Once your child has enjoyed freedom on two wheels teach them how to ‘grasp the gears’ properly.
- Get them on the bike and give them a couple of tips before you start. First keep pedalling when changing gears and secondly never backpedal on the change.
- Encourage them to change up through the range one at a time and go back on the way back down. If things are looking smooth and the chain staying on, your job is well and truly done!
- Give them the chance to try out the full range of gears and take the family for a day of riding!
Please remember safety first and thanks for watching!
