How to Ride a Bike

1. Sitting on the bike, make sure you know where the brakes are and how to operate them.
2. You have to learn to balance the bike. Find a person who can hold your bike behind you and try to steady it as you pedal. Also find a place to ride that is grassy or such.
3. After practicing for a couple minutes, the person can release his or her hands while you try to keep your balance.
4. When you are ready, ride alone. But first lower the seat until you can sit on it and put both feet flat on the ground.
5. When you are confident you can put your feet on the pedals and coast for a few feet, try not putting your feet down to train your sense of balance. Do this for 30-45 minutes or so, until you have a good feel and some confidence about steering the bike.
6. As you gain experience, raise the seat up so that only your toes can touch the ground while you are seated. This is the more appropriate height for your seat.
7. Finally, you have to practice.
8. Once you can balance, pedal, start, and stop, you’re a bicycle rider. Congratulations!
