I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll share my experience: I had a TAB (trail a bike) for my kid when she was around the same age. She loved, loved, loved being on it. Most of the time she would just be zoning out, looking at everything we were riding past.
This was totally fine with me. It was a great way for us to do things together, and to expose her to the things I liked. She still loves riding her bike today. btw, I would ask her to pedal on hills, which she did and it did help.
tl;dr: the most important thing, imo, is to spend time with your kids and have fun doing it. You can't control whether she's going to enjoy biking, but this is the best way to influence her! Secondly, I'm all for helping kids learn to be responsible, but her not pedaling at the age of 6 is totally fine, in my book
