Kids' Bike Guide

Start Them Off Right

Introduce your kids to the fun and freedom of cycling. With bikes available for all ages and stages, you can get your kids started off right. Cycling helps develop balance and instill healthy habits. It also gives children a sense of freedom and responsibility that builds confidence on and off the bicycle. Not sure which bike to choose? This guide will walk you through your options.

Sizing a Kids' Bike

Our kids' bike sizing chart below is meant to serve as a guide for sizing a bike for a child, based on height. Suggested sizing may work well for a lot of differently proportioned individuals, but these suggestions will not work perfectly for everyone. When possible we invite you to come to our kids' store for a bike sizing for your child.

Bikes For Kids Of All Sizes

bikes for toddlers

For Toddlers

Toddlers love to explore the world on foot, imagine how much fun they'll have on two wheels! Introduce kids to cycling with a balance bike. Also called running bikes, they're made especially to help little cyclists learn the motor skills and balance they need to get around on two wheels.

For Preschoolers and Kindergartners

Share the power of pedaling with your child when you get them their first "real" bicycle. These beginners' bikes get kids started with the basics of cycling by introducing brakes, coasting, and handling. Make sure to grab a helmet and pads to ease the transition to riding without training wheels.
