Learn to Ride a Bike Using the Balance Method


This video from REI is a comprehensive and step-by-step explanation of how to teach children how to ride using the pedal removal method.  Splitting up the skills of balancing and pedaling helps children master the hardest part of bicycling, which is balance.  Once you have established their balancing skills, pedaling is fairly easy to master.
