Scheels teaches toddlers how to ride a different kind of bike

A week made a huge difference for the weather around Siouxland. Warmer temperatures meant parents could take their kids outside for some fun in the sun.

On Saturday, Scheels offered kids a chance to ride a different kind of bicycle. This kind doesn't have pedals. The idea is for kids learn to balance themselves on the bike first and walk with it.

As the children navigated their way through this course, many adults are saying this is something they wish they could have had when they were kids.

"I remember biffing it before and scarring up my face, so I think that this will really help them," said Ashley Prince of Sioux City.

"You don't need to be on a trike, you don't have to be on a bike with training wheels. This is exactly where we want you to start. The learning curve is so much shorter on a Strider than it is with training wheels to getting to without training wheels," said Joshua Clayton, bikes manager for Scheels.

This promotion was being held at all Scheels locations nationwide. For those who couldn't get enough after the test drive, the bikes were offered at a discounted rate.
