As soon as your child has mastered the use of a balancing bike (or a pedal cycle without training wheels), you may transition them to a 12′′ pedal bike without training wheels. The age at which this can occur is as young as 2.5 or 3 years old, depending on your child’s degree of interest and skill.
When your kid has mastered the skills of balance, gliding, and stopping, they can progress to a normal pedal cycle. This often occurs between the ages of three and six years old.

When should my child get a pedal bike?
As a parent, you may help your child achieve success by selecting the appropriate first bike for him or her. At around three to five years of age, if the kid has mastered the balance bike and has no physical disability, the transfer to a pedal bike may be accomplished extremely smoothly without the need of training wheels or stabilizers.
Can a 4 year old ride a balance bike?
An experienced master balancing bike rider can often accomplish far more on a balance bike than they can on a 12′′ or 14′′ pedal bike when they are four years old. The majority of bike parks, single-track trails, pump tracks, and jumps are far more difficult to navigate on a pedal bike than on a balancing bike, even for children who have mastered the use of their pedal cycle.
When should I introduce my pedal bike?

Is 4 too old for a balance bike?
Some children may gladly cycle away on their own at the age of 3 or 4, but others may take a little longer to pedal away into the sunset. Occasionally, children will continue to scoot about on their balance bikes until they are 6, 7 or older.
Can an 8 year old use a balance bike?
Children between the ages of 18 months and eight years old are the greatest candidates for Kidvelo balance bikes. As soon as your child is able to walk comfortably and stand tall enough to control the bike frame on their own, it is time to consider getting them on a balancing bike.
What kind of bike should a 3 year old have?
Although children’s bikes in the 12 inch and 14 inch sizes are the most appropriate for 3-year-olds, there is a wide range in terms of price, size, and features. Although smaller children can ride on a 12 inch bike, we have found that pedal cycles are frequently too heavy for them to operate well, and that a lightweight balancing bike is a better fit for their height and weight..

How do I keep my toddler’s feet on pedals?
The PVC heel support will prevent the foot from moving out of position or from side to side excessively. On the back as well as on both sides, it should be fastened. I would not recommend raising it too much, since this may interfere with the pedaling action that legs generally use when cycling around.
