Last week I noticed M’s best friend had a brand new bike for Christmas. He didn’t have stabilisers and was cycling home from school. I turned to M and asked him if he’d like to be able to ride his Spiderman bike properly (which never had stabilisers as we never put them on). He excitedly told me he would and that was when I decided he would learn that weekend.
On Saturday morning whilst C and M were swimming, I got his bike out the shed, laid out his helmet and some elbow pads (just in case) and waited for their return. M was super excited when he got home and wanted to get outside and learning straight away.
We took him outside expecting to be out a while and were both incredibly surprised when M cycled off on his own in approximately ten minutes. Almost half an hour watching him cycle up and down outside the house before he decided he’d showed off his skill enough and wanted to go in and play with his Lego for a bit.
Our Sunday morning was spent at Upton Country Park which allowed M some more practice time. The pictures below were taken there and I also made a little GoPro video of his practice.
I can’t wait to take M on his first cycling adventure, though Clara and I need to get a couple of bikes. I imagine us cycling across the countryside enjoying family time at a totally different speed. I can’t wait!
