Balance Bike Tips #8
Here in Idaho, we have HOT summers. Wearing bike safety gear can make it feel even hotter. Luckily, there is a solution! Drinking water is the best way to keep cool during this season. It is extremely important to keep our bodies healthy by cooling off with some nice cold H2O. Dehydration can be really harmful to your body and especially harmful to the body of a child. Whether the temperature is hot or cold, we encourage Balance Bike riders to stay hydrated all year round. There are several health benefits of drinking water which include:
- Improves physical performance
- Increases energy level
- Improves brain function
- Helps prevent headaches
- Lowers the risk of dehydration and exhaustion
- And many more…
There are many more reasons to stay hydrated, especially during physical activities such as riding a Balance Bike. As a parent or guardian, always be sure to have a water bottle handy when your child is playing on their Balance Bike. Plus there’s an added benefit… hydration will help improve the overall endurance of your child and will encourage them to continue riding for longer. This means that your child will be succeeding in making the transition to a bicycle in no time!
