We took Syd on her first bike ride this afternoon. We went about 1 1/2 miles and she pedaled the whole way. She is getting the turning part under control but the coming home part still needs work.
We stopped at a park and let the girls play with the neighbor’s granddaughter for nearly an hour before we started for home. We no sooner got her helmet on and started to turn toward home and she jumped off her bike and booked it the opposite direction! I had to carry her home screaming again. Hubby carried the bike and picked up the shoes that she kicked off.
I’m hoping that the more we do this the better she will get about wanting to return. I’m thinking she is having so much fun that she does not want it to end.
