    No-pedal bikes – In French many kids start riding bicycles as early as 2 or 3 years of age.

    The trick is never to use a bike with training wheels, because they hinder the development of the proper bal 2-wheeled scooters can also be used, and they have the advantage that they will probably continue to be used even after the child has mastered a regular bike.
