There are really no special techniques in learning how to ride a bicycle. Simply put, hop on to a bicycle and try to pedal as much over a distance as possible without falling off to either side. If there is any art to learning how to cycle, it is the art of balancing. Surviving a few falls and bumps against trees and barriers are part and parcel of learning how to ride on bicycles. When you are cruising on the bike, your body, buttocks, hands and legs will have to synchronise together to achieve the greatest balance possible to sustain the cycling momentum. Your body and bicycle will progressively share the same centre of gravity, and the centrifugal force that is preventing you from swaying from side to side will also slowly evolve as you pedal more smoothly. Always put your own safety first; though stumbles and falls from the bikes are inevitable, always find a safe spot away from the main roads and pedestrians when learning how to cycle. Find spots where grass turfs are plenty, such as a park, so that even when you fall, you land on the softer grass patches and not on hard and rough surfaces.
