Finally got my daughter off the training wheels
It's been a long time coming, with lots of starts and stops and a crash into some rosebushes once, but my daughter who has some fine motor skill difficulties related to a few minor developmental issues is OFF her training wheels.
Last night we (both daughters and myself) went on a ride and went two miles out and then back. I made sure we went by a couple of their favorite parks, the soon-to-open hardware store, a pizza place they like, and a friend's house, just to show them in a way I hope they'll understand that bikes are not just fun but legitimate transportation.
