Learn how to ride a bike in The Sims 4 Growing Together!
You’ve heard the old expression. “It’s as easy as riding a bike!” Well, in The Sims 4 Growing Together, that’s very true! This expansion pack adds bicycles for children to use for both recreation and travel between lots. But just like real life, kids aren’t born already knowing how to ride a bike. They need to learn how, first.
We’re going to walk you through how to help your child Sims learn to ride a bike!
The Sims 4 Growing Together: Bike Riding
Of course, to start riding a bike, you must own one. You can purchase bikes from Build/Buy. They are listed under the Activities and Skills category. When selecting a bike for a child, make sure the object description says “Supports Children.” Children can only ride child-sized bikes.
To start, children won’t be able to use their bike to ride around the neighbourhood or travel to other lots. They have to learn how to ride the bike, first. Children can practice riding a bike on their own or they can have a caregiver teach them how to ride it. The caregiver will encourage the child and give pointers to help them master riding their new bike in The Sims 4 Growing Together.
Learning to ride a bike can take quite a while. Our Sim was outside with her daughter all day long helping her ride her bike before she learned how to ride it. It will take several practice sessions before the child can ride the bike with ease on their own.
A new milestone!
You will know your child Sim has learned to ride their bike in Sims 4 Growing Together when you see a purple popup called “Learned to Ride a Bike.” Your child Sim will gain the Learned to Ride a Bike milestone for this achievement. Once your child Sim has reached this milestone, they will be able to ride their bike around their home neighbourhood, travel to other lots on their bike, and even do tricks without adult supervision.
Riding a bike builds the Motor skill quite fast for children so it’s a good way to build this skill. Riding a bike also builds childhood confidence. Our Sim went from Neutral Confidence to High Confidence just from learning to ride a bike.
