Read: 11 mins. Teaching children how to bike is perhaps one of the most rewarding (and possibly important) duties for parents to take on, a job relegated mostly to dads among my family's circle of friends. Naturally, my wife had tasked me to teach our son the skill, a challenge I gladly accepted as I wanted to have the family go out on day trips and spend quality time together. Our son started peddling on a bike -- without training wheels -- four months after he turned 3 years old, and I credit my wife's foresight to putting him on something I had never heard of before: a balance bike. Follow along on our son's FOUR-DAY journey to becoming a confident, fast-riding, joyful bicyclist!
