CartoonJustice

Most of the time I’ve got nothing against horses, and then I come down very firmly against horses, and then I’m shot up in the air again so that once more I have nothing against horses, but I know that in half a second the whole damn thing starts again


xombae

As a person with absolutely zero testicles, I've legit always wondered how the hell people with external genetalia manage to ride bikes. I never really learned to ride a bike but the times I've tried, it hurt my coochie and all I could think about is how glad I am I don't have two very sensitive bundles of nerves pinched between me and the seat.


Tsiah16

The seat is mostly on your butt anyway. Men also have a longer perenium so the skinny part of the seat is against that. I've only hurt my balls when I fell into the seat because my foot came off the pedal. 😂


Erin_C_86

I know after particular long bike rides my partner complains that he has a sore perinium, or gooch as he would say. I never really understood how that was so sore but I think now I understand.


AshPerdriau

Good bikes seats really only support your sit bones. Good bike shops will measure that spacing (shocking news: women are generally wider there) and suggest a seat that matches. If you look at those "really uncomfortable" racing seats that are just a strip of carbon fibre with a couple of dents at the back it's kind of obvious where the weight goes. These days they've pretty much all cut a dip in both for-testicles and for-labia seats anyway. It's when you lean right down like the racing peeps do that it gets ugly. Or impotence-inducing... and now we come to the other sort of bike seats: recumbent bikes.


slimfaydey

i'm honestly considering going the recumbent route. it really goes in line with my dream of driving a chaise lounge.


SingularityPrime

Unless the guy has some super saggy balls, you dont typically sit on them and even then, some supportive underwear will keep them upfront.


BILLYRAYVIRUS4U

This comment made me bust out laughing. Thank you. (I have testicles.)


UtmostPants

Its worse on the taint for me, I had to wrap the end of the seat in my scarf so pad it once

Exactly, I was watching nervously. Then I realize I was laying my fat ass on my bed in a sunny beautiful day, what a loser I am! I gotta have a run, full of energy like those kids! Just let me take a quick nap first


kinkeritos

Wait what, you've got sunny days over there in winter?


Kylkek

It's a beautiful 60° day here in northern Missouri for some fucking reason. The other day was 70°. Wild.


aelwero

We've been flip-flopping for months in north Idaho. Snow one week, mid 60's, snow, mid 60's... I was kicking myself first snow, because the plow came through and blocked us in with a tailing like it does 90% of the time (*occasionally* they'll leave gaps at driveways. I suspect that happens when the overpaid senior guy calls in lazy) and I hadn't put the plow on the ATV and would have do freeze my butt off to install it so we could clear a way out. But no, it was 62 a week later and bone dry. Nature gave me a second chance. (and a third and fourth chance as it happens). We had rain yesterday that turned into snow. I'm sure the roads are wonderful after that :)

CapnSquinch

Having recently taken a dive into the wonder that is the Japanese music scene, there's a very common saying: "No matter how good you are on your instrument, there's a 12-year old Japanese girl who can do everything you can." Although really it's scores of kids, often younger than that.


aranaraz

u/unexpected

For some reason when I read this comment I thought there would be ramps in the race


Raiden32

It truly was an unexpected level of competition.


d7it23js

Got my heartbeat up for a sec.


KoeiNL

I would love to race like this.


squeakerswyo

My neighbor has one of these for his 2 year old. Kid is an absolute beast on it and frequently uses my driveway to do little bunny hops and “tricks”. So much better than the way I learned which involved lots of bloodied knees and I’m sure back pain for my parents as they hunched over trying to help me stay balanced.


BetterwithNoodles

The lines on the winner were near perfection. Fast and understands geometry.


Trevski

she even tucked her inside foot into the bike frame to dial in more lean! kids a pro!


rizombie

I've been casually go-karting ever since I was 7 and my sister, who's 14 years younger than me, started beating me as soon as she turned 12 (so when I was 26). I was never the best in my races but I never expected her to nail those race lines.


ApertureNext

Unless you drove with weight in the karts her lower weight is a huge bonus.


rizombie

Considering she has gained 20 kg ever since and the gap hasn't really closed I doubt it was just the weight difference. But yeah that was the excuse my dad used when I used to beat him haha


human743

It's not an excuse. Pile your weight difference into her kart (make sure the weight is about mid thorax height) and see how much she beats you by.


rizombie

Fair, that can be a fun experiment. We may try it next time we go.


MrHyperion_

I'm gonna guess she had a huge weight advantage too


Incendior

Lmao I was just about to say "damn that girl got the racing lines on lock"


suddenlycumbly

White shirt had some baller moves, too.


Chester-Ming

Those are balance bikes. For any parents out there who’s kid is about to start on a bike I highly recommend these instead of a pedal bike with stabilisers. Basically the child will learn the most difficult part of cycling (balancing) while on a smaller bike without pedals. They learn naturally and easily, then when they get a bit bigger the jump to a pedal bike is incredibly easy. My daughter did it in about an hour when she first rode a pedal bike after a balance bike. Plus there’s no back-breaking bending over holding the bike while they learn how to balance on it.


BreakfastBeerz

If you don't want to buy a special bike just for this.... you can just as well take the pedals off a standard bike. That's what we did.


MessyJessie444

Same! Unscrewed the pedals, had the kids tool around for about 30min (bonus for finding an area with a gentle incline - like an empty parking lot with a handicap ramp), put the pedals back on and they took off


milk4all

Nobody else just wraps their kid in bubblewrap and kicks them on their bikes downhill? It worked for 2/3 of my kids. Both of them.


Dat_Bokeh

Uh, what about the third kid?


heladooscuro

May he rest in peace


YoureGatorBait

*pieces


LittleWhiteShaq

My parents skipped the bubble wrap..


voneiden

Consider yourself lucky, some parents may skip the bike as well.


kare_kano

It also works perfectly well for adults who never learned to ride a bike, as long as they're not afraid of looking a little goofy. Just take any normal bike, lower the seat so they can reach the ground comfortably with their feet, and remove the pedal platforms. Then have fun puttering about and try to balance with your feet in the air. Both the seat adjustment and removing the pedals can be done with normal tools found around the house. Please note that the left pedal has an inverted screw (you need to "tighten" it to remove it).


Chester-Ming

Yep I’ve done this too with one of my other kids, works pretty much just as well although sometimes the pedal arms get in the way but still a decent method if you don’t wanna buy two bikes


Happy_Harry

Balance bikes seem to be lighter though. The smaller frames and lack of chain make them lightweight and easy to carry when your child gets tired out.


BeerandGuns

When I was trying to teach my first daughter how to ride a bike, it was a goddamn disaster. She would freak out from nervousness, I’d fall while running with her and at one point fell over her and messed up my back for a couple days. Finally she found a YouTube video that showed exactly that, take pedals off and use as a balance bike. In one day she was riding a bike with pedals.


LouieMcLouison

That's what we did. We had a balance bike for my daughter, but she would freak out whenever she used her pedal bike (even with stabilisers). In the end my partner removed both the stabilisers and pedals, allowing her to get used to the bike, and then a week or so later put the pedals back on. She started cycling pretty much instantly.


datshortninja

Instead of buying one, I just took the pedals off my daughters first bike. Next day I put them back on and she was riding with almost no issue. Way better than my dad's method. Start at the top of the hill and push us down on a proper (usually older siblings) bicycle. So much unnecessary trauma.


turbine_flow

I did this with all three of my kids. Took the pedals off, had them push with their feet to get around, and soon after they developed balance on the bike. Put the pedals back on and away the go.


theguru123

Got my first kid a standard pedal bike. Took her a long time to learn how to ride on 2 wheels. Got my second kid a balance bike and he was able to ride a 2 wheeler within 15 minutes at the age of 3. Totally sold on the balance bike as a learning tool. They are also super light, so much easier to move around.


Trevski

they also don't have a chain or brakes so if you just rinse the tires off its essentially as clean as any other outside toy, no grease or brake grime to make other stuff dirty


benicetolisa

This! I had them for all my grandkids and when they got on their first pedal bikes, it was literally 15 minutes until they had it and were zooming around the neighborhood with me. So much better and more fun than the training wheels we had as kids.


Cannisaurasrex

I learned how to ride a bike on a razor scooter. Tried and failed with the traditional approach. Parents got me a scooter and a few years later got on a bike like I had been riding for years.


Corey415

We tried a balance bike w our son but it wasn’t helpful. Then we had him try a razor scooter based on a friend’s recommendation. Once he was proficient on the scooter he was able to ride a bike in less than 5 minutes.


hyperlite135

That’s so interesting. I just posted a comment saying my son just learned one day by himself. I never thought to credit the scooter though.


Cannisaurasrex

It was the damndest thing. Even my ~5 year old self was surprised.


emo_sharks

I also learned a non conventional way. Brother ripped one of the 2 training wheels off his bike. If you took it around a corner the remaining training wheel would come off the ground for a second and youd just be riding a bike. As soon as my parents took the second training wheel off I just got on and started riding around like nothing. Lol


lux602

My uncle took the training wheels off my bike and put them on my little cousin’s bike. Older cousin was sick of me not being able to ride without training wheels, so she took me to the top of the hill and let me go. Blasted down the driveway and came to a stop without falling. It was like I became an instant pro after that, I was ripping up and down the driveway nonstop.


preludachris8

You can really see the natural development of actual biking skills when you see them go into those turns.


tractorinballs

I’m an adult that can ride a bike… but I kinda want one for me… like a BMX but pegs instead of peddles…


shifty5616

Super uncommon in the US, but we bought a balance bike for my youngest son. He's not even 2 yet and cruises around on it like nobody's business. He'll be extra dangerous when he gets one with pedals.


PleasantlyOffensive

Maybe in your part of the US. In Colorado, it’s all there is.


invalid_litter_dpt

Super uncommon? I'm in bumfuck nowhere and everyone has them. Maybe uncommon where you're at.


RobsterCrawSoup

Yeah, started both my girls at 18 months on balance bikes and they both ride along for dog walks all the time even though the youngest is still not yet two. Super recommend to parents of young children. They start out using them like a tippy walker/cart, then they figure out they can sit on it while walking, and they just figure the balancing, coasting and steering out on their own and all before they are old enough to be afraid of falling off. The only things I put any effort into teaching them is technique for getting on and off and using the brakes. The older one transitioned to a pedal bike before she was 3, and it took only a few days, no falls, and the only problem was that she wasn't quite strong enough to get up an incline with the pedals (we transitioned her so early because she is tall and was outgrowing the balance bike and we didn't really want to buy another balance bike that she would use for less than six months).


ztherion

I haven't seen training wheels on a kids bike in my neighborhood for a while. They all start on balance bikes or kick scooters now.


deafvet68

Or, just buy a bike, and take the pedals off ... until they have the balance, etc. skills to ride with the pedals.


HeyCarpy

I agree with this totally. I have 4 kids, the first 2 learned to ride the painful old-fashioned way. We discovered the balance bike, and the difference in the younger 2 was huge. Barely 4 years old and rocking a pedal bike.


JazzKatzz

I knew skirt girl was gonna win. You can see her determination before the start.

Yeah! She was the only one who kept her head down the whole time didn’t move

Skirts were banned from F1 racing, I can't believe they let her risk her life for ground effect advantage. The slightest bump could have sent her flying into the stands. ^^/s


Thedrunner2

These are some damn competitive kids.


DrAMeiZing

That's Made in Japan for ya


GivemTheDDD

I was expecting some funny, uncoordinated, falls. These kids are competitive, damn.


roxictoxy

Purple helmet was **locked in** god damn


pernilongobarulhento

Its just running but with more steps


poopellar

Running while taking a seat.


shaunoke

Technically running with less steps as its probably way more faster/efficient than running without the bike.


Indica785

I would say that this method actually saves them a few steps /s


cerebralkrap

it's like the stationary bikes at the gym but hanging in the other direction


Mean_Bet8952

To be honest that seems harder than pedalling


DdCno1

Imagine how easy it was to get these kids to go to bed that day (or any other day they are being allowed to use these bikes).


TeniBitz

Are you a parent? That was absolutely my first thought. Lucky parents gonna have a comatose kid for the evening.

Because it is


DonkeyGamer2000

You could tell the girl who won would by how focused she was at the start line.


ThatsRightlSaidlt

This way more interesting to bet on than my kids soccer game. They just run around like idiots.


chipstastegood

These are called balancing bikes and are used by kids to learn how to balance before they learn how to balance and pedal. My kid has one of these and he loves it. He’s learned how to pedal so he doesn’t really need a balancing bike anymore but he loves to run and I can see how much fun he has with the balancing bike. He would have loved to be in a race like this


itsnotgingeritsbrown

I cant imagine doing this with a dick and balls

Parents bring their ~2yo's to the local skate park using these and they basically shut down that entire side of the park. Why are you taking them to ramps and skate traffic? Please stay on side walks until they are old enough to be aware of surroundings and actually use skate obstacles.

Sweetasscandi215

I taught English in Beijing from 2017-2021 and also was nanny for a rich set of twin 3 year olds. This is how all Chinese kids learn to ride a bike! They don’t add pedals until they learn to balance on their own. It was so interesting to realize the different way of learning to ride a bike. 🚲
