I am in the process of learning something big, how to ride a bike. Okay, let me clarify. I know how to ride a bike; it is the kids that are learning. Malina is almost 7 years old now and Matteo is almost 4.5 years old. Both are experts at riding bikes- that is with training wheels! Both need to learn how to do it without them now. We finally found the time to go out with them and take away one of the training wheels a few weekends ago.
It was a successful trip to the beach. Malina worked on balancing and Matteo learned that by leaning to the side where the training wheel still is he could easily bike. We weaved our way across the people on the sidewalk and went back and forth for an hour. That was lesson one. Matteo immediately asked to have the training wheel put back on so he could ride more comfortably. We have to schedule the next lesson, but I look forward to them learning how to bike as the summer goes on. I know soon enough we will be spending hours at the beach riding up and down the strip. In the meantime if you have any tips on how teach kids how to ride a bike without training wheels feel free to share them with me.
