The Best First Pedal Bike
Updated Dec 12, 2022
If the walls are closing in on your and your kindergartener, maybe it’s time for their first pedal bike. After spending 30 hours evaluating 13 pedal bikes on pavement, dirt, and grassy hills, we’re judging the REI Co-op Cycles REV 16 Kids' Bike as the best first pedal bike for most kids. Lightweight and highly adjustable in size, it comes pretty much pre-assembled, with removable training wheels, a midrange price tag, and REI’s reputable customer service.
