Long Kicks. Relax. Roll. The kickbike’s speed will work for you.
Begin by placing one foot on the scooter’s platform & the other foot on the ground. Lift your kicking foot forward. Take note that the higher the knee lift, the higher the speed as you gain more momentum.
Swing your kicking foot backwards. As you swing, use your toes to push the ground just behind the supporting or stationary foot, which is on the platform.
Extend your kicking leg & ankle while keeping your arms straight from the handlebar
You may kick several times if you want to increase your speed.
Relax after a kick by straightening the supporting leg and let the kicking leg swing forward onto the platform. With your feet together, relax and glide away!
Switch feet when the kicking leg gets tired. That way you also get a symmetrical workout. Remember you may need to switch feet in between 3-10 kicks. The harder the kicks the more frequent the changes.
Pivot the stationary or supporting foot to make room for the other foot to slide in onto the platform. Then, put off the stationary foot and start kicking the ground. At the same time, straighten the other foot which is left on the platform.
Let’s say the left foot is currently your kick foot. As it moves forward, hop using the right foot & let it land on the ground. At the same time, allow the left foot to land on the platform.
Imagine again that your left foot is the kick foot. As it moves forward, lift the heel of the stationary foot. Then place the left foot on the platform. At the same time, allow the right leg to swing forward off the platform to the ground. Then you can start kicking!
