Top Ten Places for Learning How to Ride a Bicycle

Learning how to ride a bike can be a difficult exercise (pun intended). This list compiles the places that are most likely to make the task less challenging for early riders.

The Top Ten

1 Empty Parking Lots

They're big, flat, and easy to maneuver around. What place could be better? - BKAllmighty

That's where I first learned to ride my bike!

2 Dead-End Roads

Any road that doesn't have a lot of traffic going through is a good choice but dead-end roads are especially good for avoiding cars since the only people who you'll encounter are the people who live on that road. - BKAllmighty

3 Round Cul-de-sacs

Ah, this reminds me of that Ed, Edd n Eddy bumper that I remember from my childhood when Ed, Edd, and Eddy were biking in the cul-de-sac like good old times but crashed. That said, since cul-de-sacs are wide open and flat, they would make a great place to learn how to ride a bicycle. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Dead-end roads that end with a large, round circle that's perfect for this sort of thing. - BKAllmighty

This is where my brothers' friends taught me how to ride a bike. - Britgirl

This is where my uncle taught me to ride a bike. - ethanmeinster

4 Running Tracks

They never end, so there's no worry of running out of road (unless the person learning is bad with turning). - BKAllmighty

5 Wide Sidewalks

Sidewalks are a natural choice for bicycle training but, when it comes to guaranteeing safety, the wider the better. - BKAllmighty

6 Country Roads

You might see cars here and there but far less often than you would on any roads in town. They're great for people who'd rather keep their lessons private. - BKAllmighty

7 Bicycle Paths

They were made for bikes, after all. - BKAllmighty

They are made for bikes...

8 Driveways

Most often quite short. Best for very young learners. - BKAllmighty

9 Public Parks
10 Schoolyards

Why does the lady in the picture look like she's staring at that boys butt?

It would be wise,least chances of getting hurt - zxm

The Contenders

11 Public Golf Course

Go some time when it's not busy... the grass won't hurt them if they fall, but it's not so thick that it's hard to ride.

12 Mountains

Easy to cycle up for the first time ever and really easy to not fall off it and die!

Great for being safe: especially when they're high up. Also easy to cycle up

13 Malls

Isn't that dangerous? Whoever added this here, do you realize that you shouldn't do this? Besides, some malls strictly don't allow bike riding inside of them. - JoeBoi
