Nice ride! How did he do? My son wasn't that great on his balance bike his first time out. I think we got about 20 feet before he asked to go back home and switch to his training wheel bike.

He did great! He took it off road, down hill (a giant pile of mulch at the local playground), leaned it up against the bike rack and went scooting all over. Little dare-devil is what he is! Of course, he doesn't have a training wheel bike to fall back on, so he's kinda stuck there.
