The leg position and the seat being back on the blue bike with the small wheels - means it isn't likely to be easy to ride. Ideally, your knees are almost fully extended with your foot as part of that extension, and having your legs under your body mean you are getting much better power into the pedals.

There are a fair number of bikes with this general layout:



Many are folding designs.
