Gone With The Schwinn!*

The boys have had pedal bikes for a while but we feel the need to take them to places to ride - we live on a dead end road but the few residents drive like lunatics at times. Not so conducive to learning to ride a bike without training wheels. Well, today that changed. I took Colin and a couple of bikes to a local field and tennis court and he was riding free of training wheels in less than an hour!

We had some success coasting down a grassy hill and getting used to balancing:

and of course some less than satisfying moments but it all came together remarkably quickly and well!
