An Afternoon of Bicyling February 25, 2007

Posted by reddlissa in Family Affairs.

I decided today that it was time for my daughter to learn to ride her bike.  She has had the thing since Christmas of 2005 and has always been terrified of it.  When she first tried to ride she was a few inches too short; she couldn’t quite reach the ground.  Over the past 6 months she has grown about 4-5 inches so I figured it was time to try again.  She hopped on the bike this afternoon and was able to firmly plant both feet on the ground while sitting on the seat.  The confidence boost this gave her was tremendous.  My boyfriend and I practiced with her for over 2 hours and by the time we left the neighborhood school parking lot she was riding by herself!!  She still has a bit of trouble with right hand turns, but I’m amazed she was able to learn so much in one afternoon.  We are planning another practice session tomorrow afternoon.
