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!
