A bicycle is an amazing way to get from A to B, stay fit, and take a chance to enjoy the great outdoors. In order to make the most of your bicycle, it is important to know the parts – and this is where we can help! Read on to learn how to draw your own bicycle, and label each part: let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin with a black pen, and draw a small “S” shape at the top of your page.
Use a blue pen to bring a curved line across the top of this, and flick this up at the end.
Use the black pen to add a small circle to the left of the line, and a wider shape at the top of the “flick”.
Add a circle shape to the bottom of the “S”, and then use the blue pen and a ruler to draw a straight line at the bottom, angled towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Use the black pen to add a circle to the bottom of this.
Now, use the blue pen to add a curved line across the straight line, and heading down towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Use a brighter blue pen to add a short line just to the right of the straight line, below the curve on the right.
Now, use a black pen to add a large circle all around this bottom section – this will be one wheel of your bike.
Use the bright blue pen to make a small mark at “3 o’clock” on the bottom wheel…
And then use a black pen to the left of this to add a small circle with a straight line at the top, and a “flick” shape above this.
Grab a blue pen, and use this to draw a ring around the black circle in the center.
Use the black pen to add a small, straight line to the bottom of this…
And then add a horizontal mark across the bottom.
Now, use the blue pen and a ruler to connect this to the shape above – these will be the pedals and saddle of your bike.
Use the blue pen and ruler to draw another horizontal line out to the left of the pedals, and connect this to the dot just below the saddle with a diagonal line. Then, bring another line across from the right of the pedals, up to meet the front of the bike, and bring the fourth line across horizontally from the circle below the saddle, to just beneath the handlebars – the frame of your bike is starting to form. Use a gray pen to add a curved line above the front wheel.
Now, switch to a back pen. Bring a “V” shape up from the bottom left-hand corner, and add a horizontal line to the top of this. Connect the right end of this horizontal line to the blue line with a short, diagonal mark.
Grab the light blue pen that you used before, and add a small line to the left of the back blue line. Add a tiny “flick” to the left end.
Now use a black pen to add another large round wheel to the back…
And use the bright blue pen to add an inner ring to the front wheel.
Use the black pen to complete the wheel at the back…
Add another blue line inside the back wheel.
Now, grab a dark gray pen, and add a curve to the top of the back wheel.
Use the same shade to add two small circles to the bottom of the back wheel, and connect these with a small line. Then, add another line to the top of this.
Use a black pen to add a spiky star shape at the top of this short gray line.
Use a gray pen to add two dotted lines from the bottom gray circle to the pedal, and the top of the back spiky shape to the pedal. Use a black line to add a small curve above the pedal.
Switch to a black fineliner…
And use this to add a series of spokes in the front and back wheels.
Now, use a thicker black pen and a ruler to add a series of lines all around the sections of the bike.
Now, use the black fineliner pen to label the different parts of the bike and wheels. From the bottom right corner: Tire, Rim, Spoke, Hub, Fork, Pedal, Cranks, Chainrings, Front derailleurs, Chain, Rear derailleurs, Valve, Cassette, Fender, Brake, Rack, Saddle, Frame, Brake levers, Grip, Stem, Gear shifter, Handlebar, Headset, Head Tube, Brake.
And there we have it: you have everything that you need to know about your bike – now you know exactly how to take care of it if anything goes wrong!
