Balance Bike Racing

What are balance bikes all about?

Balance bikes serve the youngest members of the BMX families! Allowing 2-5 year olds to participate at the track versus watching the older siblings! Balance bikes are designed specifically to help toddlers and young children learn balance and coordinator BEFORE pedaling. The simple, no-pedal design allows even the youngest children to learn to ride on two wheels, avoiding tricycle tip-overs and training wheel wobbles, and instilling considerable confidence and stellar bike handling skills.
