Kids riding on their own (The lazy way)
|Taking a break on Bicycle Sunday|
|Training wheels bike|
|Say Cheese Steve!|
|Family Bikes in the distance|
It was a happy occasion to wait for the pedals. While this was happening Baby Peyos and I went to visit Morgan. Can you see her in the purple? We made our way to check out the different family bikes.
Again, if you want to rent a bike contact Morgan, she has so many bikes to choose from. Remember my adventures with the Madsen? You can recreate them minus the speakers. I wanted to stick Baby Peyos on a bike but he was grouchy and just wanted his human water bottle/food source/pillow so he wasn't into my fun. I did manage to stick him in a cargo bike. I think the yellow subdued him.

So, if you want your older kid to bike take the pedals off. Put the pedals back on and don't worry they will bike. Then again, potty training with her was this easy. One day Mr. Peyos said to her, "you will no longer be wearing diapers". She said, "Okay". That was it! From that day on she went to the potty in her tiny toilet. So, the biking doesn't come as a surprise. Who was nervous about her falling? Mr. Peyos! As soon as he realized she was biking he kinda ran after her to "help" her. He walked fast next to her and reached out his hand when he thought she would fall. Good thing our kid told him to leave her alone.
She biked all the way home but on the way her seat needed to be put up. Lucky for us Cascade was out in full force and had tools. We got to borrow a tool but not before we were lectured on how badly her bike helmet was on our kid. Am I going to get into the helmet debate? No, but I can tell you that we won't freak out if somehow it gets forgotten. It's the law so we wear one. Now that our kid is on her bike it feels liberating. Now she is trying to get miles to earn a newer bike.
