Tuvizo Encourages Parents To Start Biking With Children As Early As Possible
Tuvizo’s Jo Parkes explains in a recent family health post that it might be a good idea for parents to start teaching their kids to bike even at a very early age.

Cycling together can also be an important high quality bonding time for the family. According to Tuvizo Public Relations Officer Jo Parkes, "Encouraging children to be involved in your cycling activities is a wonderful bonding experience as a family. Not only is it healthy exercise, it also encourages a sport that the family can enjoy together for many years to come."
The article pointed out that safety should be the primary concern of parents. Basic safety gear like helmets, reflective stickers on bikes, elbow and knee pads, and a reflective running vest are a must for these outdoor biking activities.
One year olds can start enjoying cycling with mom or dad strapped securely to a well-padded child bike seat or a bike trailer. The important thing to remember is that the child should be able to sit properly and support his or her head.
An older kid who gets a little bit impatient strapped to a child bike seat or a bike trailer, can get a taste of cycling by means of a push bike. When the child is ready, a one wheel trailer bike can be used which will give the child the feeling of actually propelling or steering the bike, according to the Tuvizo article.
Finally, when the child is old enough (7 years and up), the parents can introduce training wheels. When this stage is done, a child's first real bike should be the proper size to allow the child to ride comfortably.
Done in stages and started at a young age, parents can ensure that their children will not only be able to ride their bikes safely but will also learn to love the hobby as passionately as their parents.
"The team at Tuvizo highly recommends introducing children to cycling early, you won't regret it," added Parkes.
