Testing Out The Trailer

with 4 comments


My son and I will be attending el Tour de Taco tomorrow, and because he doesn’t ride yet, we’ll be rolling with the bike trailer. This thing spends most of its time hanging in the garage, so we thought decided to dust it off and take it for a test spin around the neighborhood.

I think I might be breaking him down. His reluctance to learn is starting to get replaced by comments like “I feel like I’m flying!!!”

  2. Nifty. That’s a good way to encourage interest in learning to cycle. My nine daughter only decided to learn to ride this past summer. I was happy because I was starting to feel like a fraud as a cycling Dad.

  3. I did not learn to ride a bike until I was 8 also. I had broken my arm when I was 7, and had to have physical therapy to gain full use (or more like 99% use) of it again, so I didn’t try to ride a bike until after that. I remember being scared to fall down, and I’m sure I crashed plenty of times, but once you get that feeling of flying, freedom, etc. it’s hard to let a few scrapes stop you. 🙂 I hear those balance bikes make it a lot easier to learn than the crappy training wheels I used.
