    A very proud moment as a father!

    So after about a year of riding a balance bike (or some people call them push bikes) I decided it was time to put Liana on her pedal bike.
    She never had training wheels and it only took about 30 min of pushing her around and little bit of coaching to get her to ride all by herself!
    For your viewing pleasure, here is a short video that I took of her last night, only a few minutes after she started riding. I am still amazed at how quickly she started ripping up the driveway

    Time to start building her a flow track with those dirt mounds in the front yard I just picked up a balance bike for my 3 year old a couple of days ago for his birthday at the end of this month, can't wait to see how he does with it!

    Liana had just turned 2 when I bought her the balance bike, It was cool to watch her figure it out. I would let her ride/push it around inside the house, then before I knew it we were riding to the park together about 1/4 mile each way.

    She'll be Mtn biking with me before I know it...

    I have a 3 year old I want to get on a balance bike to start the fun. Does anyone here have a balance bike they are looking to retire and sell for a good cause to a future shredder?
