Instructor tips:

  • It is ESSENTIAL that the child is confident scooting and balancing before they practice pedaling.
  • Children who have learned to ride with training wheels typically spend the majority of their time learning to scoot and balance.
  • Children who have learned to ride using balance bikes typically spend the majority of their time learning to pedal.

When removing the pedals, the threads on the left pedal are opposite. The right pedal threads righty-tighty, lefty-loosey. The left pedal threads lefty-tighty, righty-loosey. You will need a 15 mm wrench to remove the pedals.
