With three years on the impeller
When children prepare to ride a Bicycle, the Pedal and chain. The saddle, Handlebars and two wheels: Finish the impeller. Wheels have become popular toys for small children: they introduce children to the bike, without overwhelming you. Aware is dispensed with pedals and chain, because they are powered with Fußabstößen from the ground. Used correctly, wheels to prepare the body control schools and children on safe behavior in road traffic.
“The wheel prepares children for later to ride a Bicycle,” says Martina Abel, managing Director of the BAG More safety for children in Bonn. “The children learn to keep the balance, to Orient in space, to brake in time or swerve. You gain in responsiveness and motor safety.”
The right entry age for running Cycling depends on the individual development of the child. Some wheels are already offered for two years. In practice, this is usually too early, because the children are not able to control their movements sufficiently, and the vehicle speed is not in control of. Only from the age of two and a half to three years, infants are ripe for the impeller.
The impeller is not in use in road traffic
In order to prevent accidents, children should rise only in secure environments on the wheel, for example on the Playground or in the pedestrian zone. On the sidewalk next to the street, children are quickly overwhelmed, if you react to other traffic participants and obstacles to Dodge. Even if the path is a steep descent, children should not use the wheel, because you can lose at high speeds quickly out of control.
“Parents can practice the run-of-Cycling with your children at the best in large, flat places,” says Martina Abel. “The children should never ride unattended. Also, a helmet is advisable, not only because it protects from injury, but at the same time on the bike go prepared with helmet. Parents should rehearse with their children, clear rules, for example, in the vicinity of a road descend.”

When buying a wheel, it is worthwhile to pay attention to the GS mark. In the case of poorly made models, the handlebars, the fork is not broke, the Suspension is always sufficiently stable. In addition to the processing quality of the child-friendly Design: The entry should be as low as possible, the saddle and Handlebars should be adjustable in height. Also, the child should be found on the saddle a good fit – the best device in the Store to test!
