    Snow ride with the Nephew

    This is a great way to have fun on Christmas Eve. Go out with your 3 Y.O. Nephew and hit the paths all throughout the neighborhood. He was great seeing the smile and hearing the giggles. I love riding with this little tike! We started on the plowed/shoveld parts but that quickly ended, turns out he loves the snow also.

    looks like he looks upset with you, waiting for you to catch up. You gotta close that gap when you are drafting off him!

    Great pics.

    I really like that kids bike without pedals. What a nice idea as compared to training wheels. I'll have to find one for my grandnephew.

    Fastest way to teach kids to ride is to take the pedals off. They learn the balance thing first then put the pedals back on and off they go. Worked for my grandchildren and has worked for countless others. Training wheels are more hindrance than help
    Red, like the color my hair used to be.

    His parents are starting the transition to pedals now. He really has the balance down great, we have in the past held him on rollers to teach him pedaling. The concept is there and he will take off soon!
