Joash has been doing very well on the strider for quite a long time now. Thus, it's high time letting him have a go at the real deal. Within minutes, Joash was zipping around on the red hand-me-down bike we got. Bravo! *applause* He did not even need much help from us parents at all, thanks to having learnt how to balance previously from using the strider.
Jayna couldn't use the strider at all when we first got it. Over time, I did let her try a couple of times but she gave up too quickly, perhaps out of fear. However, watching her older brother riding a bike with ease gave her new-found motivation to overcome her inertia. This is her first time being able to move forward on it. You go, girl! With enough practice, I'm sure you can master cycling in the future too.
