Pedals!

Posted by in Uncategorized

We are big fans of the Strider bike – a two wheel bike with no pedals designed to teach kids balance. We started taking Strider classes at Boulder Indoor Cycling. The Velodrome is amazing – its filled with ramps and obstacles for the kids to practice on and Elsie loves the class.

The instructor recommended we purchase a bike with pedals and bring it to class to start the transition. So for Elsie’s 3rd birthday – we headed to the bike store determined to select a unisex bicycle that our next child could share …  of course, Elsie and I settled on Purple with Butterflies. The bike is quite a bit heavier and pedaling is a whole new concept. She is desperate to ride the pedal bike and keeps at it …

Tonight after dinner Elsie and Mark were outside practicing – she burst in the house and wanted me to come and see what she could do …

Well done stinker!
