Fathers and Bikes

Kid on a bike

Kid on a new bike

The kid was so excited about his new bike and the father beaming that he was riding it around, didn’t say anything about the front fork being backwards. In a few years, he’ll hold a wobbling kid on that bike without training wheels, then let him go (hope he fixes the fork by then)… To us, Father’s Day is about teaching a kid to ride a bike.


Step 1: Take off the training wheels and never use them again.  Your kid will learn faster and have more fun at the same time.  If they need to build confidence, start them on a balance bike (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balance_bicycle) or just take off the pedals.


Agreed. Striders, balance bikes and no pedals make all the difference.
