Thanks to early/late birthday presents from my parents, the kids have a pair of these rather cool pedal-less bicycles - one E5N1 sized and the other for the girls to share.
After some failed attempts to get them to even try riding a two-wheeler in the past we were hoping that these would bridge the gap and help them to get the feel of balancing a bike and develop some confidence.
So, even though the girls birthdays aren't until next week, we decided to make the most of this excellent being-outdoors weather and took them to the town park. It went rather well. Here is Exile #4 attempting a down-hill glide on a slightly bumpy path.
I think it will be even more fun with a slightly greater incline.
E5N1 loves his too although he still has a way to go to develop his technique.
