The youngest can not take it anymore, by dint of seeing you spin on a scooter he wants to do the same. Ready to introduce your child to this sport? Until he rolls by your side, here are some tips for getting started.
THE GOOD MATERIAL OR NOTHING !
The first step, for anyone preparing to crisscross the streets on a scooter, is to have the right equipment. As much for his safety as for his pleasure, involve your child in the choice of his equipment. He will be all the more motivated to learn that he will have chosen equipment that he likes, and with which he feels good.
Depending on the age, size and dexterity of your budding sportsman, it is necessary to adapt the two-wheeler. Opt for quality with maneuverable vehicles, light enough while remaining stable and reliable.
Also choose the right size and the right model: no need to force the beginner to ride on a two-wheeled scooter if he prefers the three wheels; think of the handbrake for toddlers (more stable).
As for safety, do not forget the helmets, knee pads and elbow guards. Explain to him their role: they must not be a constraint, but allies to have fun!
