Whoever said, "it's as easy as riding a bike," obviously already knows how to ride one. For young kids learning to ride a bike for the first time can be intimidating and take plenty of practice. Balance bikes have been a great addition to the marketplace in the past few years to help beginning riders take to the streets, but we were thrilled when Kristin sent news of her family's DIY balance bike solution.
Kristin titled her blog entry on the project, "Look Ma! No pedals!" and that's exactly what they did. They removed the training wheels and pedals from a regular bike and now daughter Eliza is learning to balance on it. Soon enough they'll be able to put those pedals back on when she's ready to ride for real. Visit Kristin at Prairie Daze for all the photos and more family fun.
