No training wheels anymore 76/365

09.09.2012 4:50pm

We had a power failure yesterday for most of the day, and because Connor wasn’t distracted by XBox and TV etc etc, we decided to try and cycle again without training wheels… and he DID it!! Woot!! We started on the grass so that he would land softly if he fell off and within 10 minutes he was riding on the driveway again. ¬†We went to my parents house for lunch today and took the bikes with us… their road is much more suitable for learning than our road is.

He did amazingly well today, and by the end of the afternoon he was riding properly without any help at all… even negotiating the uphill properly!
