Monkey has been riding his bike with the training wheels bent up for about a month now. We did that with GG too. It is a confidence builder because they would know when they were riding right because they couldn't hear the training wheels on the ground. They learned to be straight on the bike but if they got off balance they wouldn't fall to the ground every time. I had been watching Monkey and J and I talked about how I really thought he was ready for the wheels to come off. With all the yard work J has been doing he says, "When ever you want to take them off and teach him go right ahead." At first I was like but you taught GG and I'm pregnant! But today I took them off and he did great and I didn't even have to run holding on that much with my slow pregnancy body :) I was helping him ride his bike and I took video...I know I'm talented! But the video is a little shaky so sorry in advance but I *had* to get it recorded it's so exciting to learn to ride a bike without training wheels.
His first good run!
Monkey getting better...
We are so happy he has learned this new adventure :)
