    My 4year old son

    My son Jake just turned 4 on 9/23 he has been riding his TWO wheeler for a while now.
    I have been taking him out for longer rides, three miles...he is doing great
    Nothing like a bragging father...

    In case you're wondering about the "pink" tire...he blew out two rear tires from skidding
    the only replacement around was from his sisters bike

    When I saw the skatepark bit, I was worried that you were one of those guys that takes their kids to a busy skatepark and just lets their young kid loose without telling him to watch out for other riders.

    good thing you arent. I've had too many experiences with kids that just don't know whats going on putting themselves and everyone else in danger. But it looks like you are teaching him some good things early on. I always brag about how I started early, but i dont think I was shredding it like that when I was that young.

    thanks

    He was riding with training wheels, and doing alot of skidding, so I had to change the tires and decided to let him try riding without the training wheels and within two minutes he picked it up. Also rides the scooter well.

    Very Cool

    Isn't just a great feeling when you get to go ride with your kids...

    My son Turner was off his training wheels at 2 and racing BMX at 3 1/2. It is a blast to watch them. He is now 8 and still racing. He wants a Mountain bike for Christmas so we are getting him a 12 inch frame with 26 inch wheels...He can ride his mom's 15 inch with the seat slammed so he should be ok on the 12 inch...

    His sister Tara on the other hand has no interest in taking her training wheels off or racing. She just turned 4. I am not going to push her and let her ride at her own pace. Everybody learns at a different level and I don't want her to lose the enjoyment she has riding by pushing her off her training wheels...

    I too have a son that started at 4,he's almost 6 now and loves to ride.We live by a pretty busy 2 lane highway so most of his riding is in the yard and some easy dirt trails I take him on.
    He is always watching me try new things in the yard and I love watching him try them to.

    that is really impressive, thanks for sharing
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.
