Default My 2 Year Old Can Ride A Bike!

At 2 years, 2 months, he can finally ride/pedal the 12" wheeled bike I got him. Training wheels obviously. He can steer and do everything on his own. I can't keep him off the dang thing now, and he can get thru the child lock on the basement door. We have an unfinished basement of about 1500 SqFt., and he has plenty of room now that I did the spring cleaning.

Now the goal is to have him off traing wheels by 3 to 3 1/2.

Both my 2 and 3 year old will have their 12" K2s at CM08. Bring your boys. We can have a race.

Congrats!

Now the next step is to get him a Honda 50 or Yammie PW80. You can get those with training wheels... gets kinda smokey in the basement though.

Seems like yesterday we did that. Our place was perfect for it. 3 acres of wherever-he-wants-to-go.

been there!

Classic case of "be careful what you wish for" I was still racing and riding avidly when calvin came along. I would come in from a 4 hour training ride, and he would want to "go for a ride daddy"
