Baby's Got Bike

Little riders get moving with push bikes, training wheels, and big-kid cruisers.

Ready, set, ride. It's a race to the park, and the slickest wheels win.

For baby's first ride:
Consider Junior's wish granted with a beautifully designed pre-peddler bike that grows with your child. It starts as a simple trike (for 1-year-olds), morphs into a small ride-on (for 2- to 3-year-olds), and flips into a larger two-wheeler (for 4- to 5-year-olds). Available locally at Baby Earth.

For the thrill seeking toddler set:
Designed for kids 2 - 5, the wooden bike has no pedals or training wheels. Tykes just hop on, kick off the ground as if they're running, and glide like the wind. The ride comes fully assembled, except for handlebars and front wheel, which are easily attached. Available locally at Terra Toys.

For those ready to take off (with training wheels)
She'll love learning to ride with this sturdy, classic 12-inch bike features removable training wheels and an adjustable seat to grow with her. Plus, it comes with easy-to-use coaster brakes and a real ringing bell. Also comes in candy apple red. Available locally at Zinger Hardware.

For the too-cool-for-school big kid:
Just one glance at the fiery flames painted on this and your little dude's heart is guaranteed to race. Besides looking super rad, the rustproof stainless steel hardware, alloy rims, and thud-resistant steel chain guards and fenders make this bike an all-around winner. As if being a kid wasn't awesome enough... Available locally at REI.
