What ^he^ said...

I started riding with my youngun' on the street when he was nine. Taught him the rules and how to navigate, etc. Rode with him all the time until very recently. He'll be eleven in June and now enjoys biking himself to school and to see some of his friends. While I would like to take credit for my awesome teaching skills, it's all him. He is an excellent cyclist with very good instincts. Of course, there are limits to where I will let him go on his own. But when I am with him to guide, teach, look out for, etc. we go anywhere and everywhere.

It's kindof up to your kids, ya know? Some of them are ready and some aren't. Good luck and be safe
