"Mom, lets go ride a bike outside, really fast"
Last summer we got Noah a balance bike. It took him a little bit to get used to it, but once he did, he was cruising! He was always asking to go out and ride his bike, which has been so fun and we were constantly racing. It made my mommy heart so happy once he figured out how to cruise around. Ben and I knew we wanted to let him try a big boy bike once he felt super comfortable with his balance bike. We wanted to wait to give it to him for Christmas, but we couldn't wait once we got our package from Woom Bike . We were so giddy about it and couldn't wait for him to use it.
To be honest, I was pretty nervous about him riding it. The balance bike did its job. Everything that you've heard about a balance bike, is true! It teaches balance and coordination without worrying about wheels. Noah had the balance down, now he just needed to pedal. We explained that he now was a "big boy", and that his big boy bike had pedals that he needed to use. No kidding, Ben put him on the bike and right away he knew how to ride it. You know I was freaking out, jumping up and down. It was kind of a deja vu to when he started walking!!! What is happening to my firstborn, he is growing way too fast for my liking!
He isn't cruising just yet, but he sure knows how to pedal and how to keep his balance. I love how light the bike is and the details everywhere. You guys know Ben's research skills in every little thing, and he said that this is one of the best kid bikes out there. Little things like the the height of the seat compared to the handlebars, the way the child sits, and the overall physics of the bike was so impressive.
Also you need to check out their helmet collection h e r e, they are all AMAZING!I It is designed in Austria, it comes in different colors and it is available in 6 different sizes. Basically everyone in the family can have their own ;)!
Enjoy your weekend!!
