We have entered a new world of riding bikes in our little complex street. It has been fun and we have met more neighbors.
I am fully behind the new balance bike movement. Give a child a bike with no pedals. Let them tootle around on it, pushing with their feet and they will learn to balance on their own. No training wheels needed. Since balance bikes are the same $ as normal, I got Kalena a $10 bike at a garage sale, and had my dad take the pedals off. She LOVES it, and is doing so great on it. She is getting faster and faster, and has learned how to balance. I foresee another couple months of her little balance bike, and then she will be ready to jump on a big girl bike!
