on biking + tips on how to care for your bike

fun activities for children, games for little children, my favorite things

Biking is probably one of the most enjoyable thing to do, that was why I was so happy when my tito + titas gave me one for my birthday last year. I was so excited to learn how to ride it + would ask mum to help me take it out to the garage where I can ride almost every single day. Even though I was still quite small to learn how to ride a bike at that time, mum would patiently teach me how to pedal + would push me around the garage just so I can have a feel of how it is like to actually ride a bike. Biking, or cycling as what others call it, is also a perfect form of exercise as you work out your leg muscles, as well as your arms and hands as you ride.

Unfortunately, after a year of using my bike, the Lightning McQeen bike seat just gave in + snapped. Mum is not sure whether we can still have it repaired or if we need to buy a new one, which might take a while as these bikes do not come cheap. It was really sad that I can no longer ride my bike. I would really love how to learn how to pedal + am so much willing to practice everyday to finally learn how to do it.

Oh well, I hope you have more luck with your bikes than I did. Here are a few tips on how you can take care of your bike so you can use it for years and years to come:

  1. Stash your bike in a Bike storage when not in use, to ensure that it is in a-okay condition + to ward off potential danger or damage
  2. Inflate your tires properly before riding to prevent untimely tire damage and to ensure your safety while riding your bike
  3. Keep your bike day to prevent rust from damaging the metal parts of your bike. When it accidentally gets wet while you are riding, make sure to dry it up before you stash it away
  4. Oil your bike’s pedals + chains as these moving parts tend to grind on each other when not well oiled.

    Hi, Jared! Jade and Jakei love riding their bikes too. They only get to ride it inside the house also coz it’s not safe outside. Please tell your mom that she can buy just a seat for your bike if all the other parts are still working. Just go to any bike shop and ask around. 🙂

    hopefully, tita, it has been awhile since my bike got broken



    Bikes attract rusts among others so it’s important to keep them clean and well maintained.

    Unfortunately, my parents did not allow us to train biking skills and we did not have any place to bike on. So until now, I am still afraid to ride bikes! :O

    Jared's Mum Reply:

    aww, that is too bad. maybe you can try renting a bike in the park, that is probably the safest place to do it. am sure it is going to be fun + you are gonna enjoy it 🙂

    i remember when i was a kid that my parents gave me a bike. and the next day, i’ve been vigorously playing at the street.. with many stumbles and falls. hahaha

    Jared's Mum Reply:

    stumbles + falls are but part of learning how to bike, you can also add bumps + bruises to the list! 🙂

    If it’s just the seat, you can buy it in bike specialty stores. I really want to buy Una a bike, maybe for Christmas hehe.
