The balance bike concept is simple; it's a bike without pedals. The days of faceplanting over the handlebars after being launched down a bumpy farm track as a way of making the transition from stabilisers to pedals are over (hurrah!) Balance bikes offer a safer, more enjoyable and confidence-boosting way of learning to pedal. It's a method that has been used on the continent for years; probably no coincidence that they have larger populations of safe, confident cyclists.
