Step 1: Find a small hill.
Step 2: Put a helmet on your head.
Step 3: Sit on the seat of your bike. Then, put your feet on the ground.
Step 4: Quickly pick your feet up and put them on the pedals.
Step 5: If you don’t get it on the first try, try multiple times until you get it!
Step 6: When you get the hang of it, push your feet down on the pedals and you will start to move.
Step 7: If you want to stop, either push back on the petals, or, there will be a thing above the handlebars. Pull it back and you will slowly start to stop.
Step 8: When you get comfortable going fast, you should put knee pads and elbow pads on.
Step 9: Make it harder on yourself by going up a steeper hill!
Step 10: Do this until it gets out of your comfort zone.
Step 11: Once you’re tired, take a break. Get a snack and some water.
Step 12: Then, once you’re calm, get back up or go home.
Step 13: If you fall off, get help. If it does not hurt, get back up.
Step 14: Once the day is done, you should go back home. It is not safe to ride at night.
Step 15: Practice more and more and you will get better!
