No more training wheels!

What a champion! He is cycling without any training wheels. Daniel was given his First Bike (this is also the brand name) which is a balanced bike without pedals  on his 2nd birthday and he started using it at 2.5 years old. That balanced bike enabled him to understand that he has full control of the bike by using his body to counterbalance and it would go as quickly as his legs would push off the ground.

On his 4th birthday, we bought him a real pedal bike with training wheels and he loved it. He sat up higher and felt like a "big boy".

Two weeks ago, his dad decided that it was time for the training wheels to come off and Daniel embraced that opportunity because the training wheels prevented him from going quicker and taking corners often resulted in him falling off the bike.

Daniel took to the training with enthusiasm and over two short practices, he was on his way!

He has been on a few bike rides with his dad to the shops and parks ... his beaming face says it all.

What a wonderful activity for daddy and son to enjoy together.

Daniel, we are so very proud of you.
