My four year old has been practicing standing and pedaling for most of this summer having watched me do it when we ride together. He is slowly learning the 'art' of lifting his butt off the saddle over bumps and over the weekend took my advice to stand to pedal through some grass. With the added resistance of the grass, he actually looked pretty smooth for once, relative to him bouncing around trying to stand and pedal when he is already near his max cadence seated.

If he can get it, I am confident that you can, too
