Ready to Ride w/ Mathias Ihlenfeld

Getting more kids on bikes more often is the driving passion behind Woom bikes.

Over the past decade or so teaching children how to ride a bike has fundamentally changed. No longer are training wheels considered best practice, instead, the balance bike is now considered to be the preferred, most effective way for kids to develop the skills and confidence necessary to ride.

Woom Bikes is an Austin based company that focusses only on providing high-quality bikes for children from 18 months through their teens.

In this episode, John has an in-depth conversation with Mathias Ihlenfeld not only about the company, but the science behind how kids learn to ride.
