What I did to learn how to ride my bike is this: Find a long steady hill, preferable a bit of steadily up hill road in a cul-de-sac or a bit of path. Now get onto your bike, without your feet on the pedals balance down the hill. Once you have got used to that try the same thing with your feet on the pedals. After getting used to that try slowly rotating the pedals (or cycling). And there are the basic instructions to learn how to ride your bike on your own.

Make sure you are close to home, so that if you fall off you can easily get home quickly.

If you are a parent and want to help your child cycle, then follow these instructions. Go to your nearest park on a nice day (with your child's bike), get your child to get on their bike and keep hold of the under of the bikes' seat. Get your child to start pedaling, but not too fast! When you think your child is used to cycling, let go and let them cycle independently.

Another way of teaching your child to cycle is to use some stabilizers. Once they can cycle fairly fast with them on take them off, you may need to follow the instructions above after this.

Usually a child learns riding a bike at age 3 to 5, and I am going to show tell you some tips which will take you a day to master. My child and started learning to ride his bike at age 7 which is a bit too late. A bicycle shop owner had told me that pushing you legs up quickly on the bike is a great way to get balancing on the bike. Next step is to push your child while he's on the bike peddling and convince him or her that you'll be behind them at all times and while your child is on the bike him or her will feel as if you are pushing him while they are peddling. After that they know that they can ride the bike without their parents or training wheels interfering, therefore making them feel confident of themselves. And those are two tips you will need to get your child riding in no time

you just step on the paddle and keep you balance slowly and fast.

You hold on the handles then put your leg over the bike and put your foot on the pedal that is facing high then push with your foot on the ground then start pedaling.
First, try not to balance on the bike. Try to see how long you can remain upright before you must put your foot left. Probably the worst way to learn to ride is to find a very gently sloping hill, and coast down it. Do this a few times, then draw chalk marks on the road and try steering around them. Once you can coast down the hill without falling over put your feet on the peddles and peddle.

The kick is kind of like a backflip. When I was learning this trick I practiced without a ball then after I got the motion down I practiced my accuracy with the ball. Now my friends call me Pele. Ian

This is how I learned. It is just one way (of many ways) to learn.

  1. Hold both handlebars while standing beside the bike (dominant side closest to the bike, so right-handed person is to the left of the bike).
  2. With your foot, kick backwards on the kickstand to push the lever upward; keep a hold on the bike.
  3. Step over or throw your leg over the center bar(s) while still holding the handlebars.
  4. You must next step on tippy toes so your rear end lifts high enough to sit on the seat. It is important that the height of the bike still lets you touch tippy-toes on the ground. If not, the bike is too big for you; get a smaller bike, or wait until you grow a little.
  5. Once you know it is the right size height, unfortunately, you won't be riding immediately. Most kids first get used to a bike by "walking" while straddling the bar. But you must also learn how to sit, and bring one foot then the other up to the pedals. For this, most kids need a second person.
  6. An adult or much older child should grasp the center of the handlebars and the back of the seat. Tell the child to lift up and sit on the seat. Then, lift one foot to the pedal, then the other foot. The adult will balance the bike. The bike will wiggle during this balancing act so child and adult should hold tight.
  7. Naturally, one pedal will go downward from the weight of the child's foot as he/she attempts to find balance for the upper body. Let your foot do this natural motion, while the other pedal and foot come upward. This moves the bike's wheel forward, so the adult must be walking forward with this movement.
  8. With each pedal turn, the child is learning to balance while pedaling, while the adult steadies the bike. The adult should let go of the center of the handlebars but still hold the seat--but be ready to assist on the handlebars again if needed. It is hard for a learner to keep the front tire straight-- so there will be lots of wiggling of the handlebars and wheel going right and left. Encourage the child to keep the wheel straight.
  9. The faster a child goes, the adult will go from walking to a slow jog. All learners want to go faster before they completely learn to balance. But the adult-helper is needed until the learner gets everything working simultaneously-- balancing while feet are on the pedals and going straight.
  10. During this process, the adult should purposely teach braking and how to stop. Speak "Now brake, put your foot down, then both feet. Great! Now let's start again-- butt on the seat, lift one foot, then the other foot, start going forward..."
  11. As the learner learns to control these three aspects, the adult should gently let go of the seat but keep their hand close enough to assist with balancing again. Every few minutes, let ago again.
  12. When the adult lets go, it's scary! The bike is wobbling! It feels out of control! BUT there is an almost magical moment when... everything works together perfectly! The learner is moving forward independently, and FEELS their own balancing!
  13. But, most learners find a truth--- you can only go straight so long. While before, the wheel crazily turned side to side, now the learner is afraid to turn the wheel at all to turn! The learner must now learn to lean slightly to the side as they lean into the turn. Most of these first turns will be very wide before the learner straightens the wheel to go straight again.
  14. Now, it becomes practicing... go down a stretch, make the turn, come back, make the turn, go back down the stretch, etc. Most learners start to "play" now... they go partway down the stretch and turn early. Some learners practice going in circles. Others like the stretch more than the turns, while others prefer turning more than going straight. All of this 'playing' is building confidence while also learning to stop and restart the ride.
  15. Next comes grades, inclines, slopes. It's ideal if a road or parking lot has a small grade to go up turn and come back down. Again, this becomes "play". Eventually, the learner wants to do more!
  16. Here the learner is ready to learn "Rules of the Road". Like, you ride with traffic going in the same direction. You learn hand signals to alert motorists about what the cyclist intends to do next: Slow down, right or left turn, stopping sign. Making each signal requires the cyclist to remove one hand from the handlebar--- this is another type of balancing the cyclist must learn before graduating to road biking.
  17. Once a cyclist can do each hand signal, the learner can try biking on a less-traveled portion of road or street. Now the cyclist should practice using the hand signals while traffic is nearby.
  18. Still, nothing quite prepares a rider to go onto a busier road or street! Stay to the side; signal to make your intentions known; keep your balance; keep pedaling; -- oh my, am I going to be able to stop at the stop sign at the end of the block!? With each experience, the rider gains confidence that he / she can handle the usual responsibilities of biking.
  19. Every biking event will teach unexpected skills. How to ride on gravel; being pushed over onto a soft road shoulder without skidding; what to do when drivers get too close or turn in front of you; how to make a left turn when on a busy road; times when it's safer to get off the bike and walk it across an intersection; etc.
  20. But, it all began with straddling the bike and learning to pick up one foot, then the other, and learning to balance precariously atop a small movable machine.
