Learning to ride

After today's run and a little yard saling, Junior and I had another try at this bike riding thing. Yesterday he managed a couple of 7-second intervals on his own, so we're trying to build on that. He's not super motivated, but I told him that he could watch his movie when we were finished.

Getting on is still a bit of a challenge.

But he's doing better with riding with help (not doing "look ma, no hands!" or braking just because is a big help there).

Our goal today was a 10-second interval. He did it!

He was a little wobbly at time, but he's learning to correct it on his own.

And of course I'm following him to catch him if he falls.

But he managed 4 10+ second intervals, including two that were nearly 30 seconds!

He's sooooo close to really getting it! And if he does, he'll be the first of my 3 boys that I've taught to ride a bike! :) I have visions of rides to the pool and on the bike trail dancing in my head.
