An exciting part of The Sims 4: Growing Together is the four new child aspirations you can pursue. While some allow you to increase your social and creative skills, others encourage strengthening your motor skills. One of the new aspirations is the Mind and Body one, combining motor and mental skills to turn your child Sim into a confident, bike-riding maniac.

How to Learn to Ride a Bike in The Sims 4: Growing Together
Before you can start riding a bike, make sure you own one! You’ll find seven bicycles in the Build Menu (eight if you have Discover University) that you can purchase for around 100-125 Simoleons. Be sure to get one with the “Supports Children” tag at the bottom, or else you’ll end up having one that only adults can use.
Once you buy a bicycle fit for a child, select your young Sim and choose “Practice Riding Bike.” They’ll head out and begin riding the bike, awkwardly pacing back and forth as they get used to its movement. Your child Sim will also naturally increase their motor skills, allowing you to gain progress toward later goals. Over time, they’ll get better at bike riding, and the task will activate in your aspiration menu.
As a side note, if your bicycle randomly disappears, check your child Sim’s personal inventory! They’ll often pick up the bike and carry it around rather than leave it outside.

Using Adults Sims to Teach Bike Riding
From this point onwards, you’re primarily waiting until your young Sim practices enough to learn how to ride a bike. However, if you want to speed up the process slightly, you can get help from a nearby adult Sim by selecting “Ask for Help With Bike Riding.” Just be careful if the two Sims have distant or difficult family dynamics since they may feel slightly uncomfortable around each other during it!
