What is balance bike racing?
Balance bikes were first designed to introduce children to biking without stabilisers. The bikes, which have no pedels, are powered by children running. The framework is made of plastic and with no pedals or brakes, the bikes are free from greasy chains.
Children can start using balance bikes from the age of two.
