Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I had my sister’s old bike with a sparkly yellow banana seat and streamers on the handlebars. I miss that bike. My dad taught me, and I still remember how great it felt to finally ride without the training wheels.
Like maybe… Stephanie!?! Congratulations Stephanie, the balance bike is all yours! I’ll be emailing you shortly, you’ll have 24 hours to respond.
Many many thanks again to Outdoor Daily Deals for sponsoring the giveaway. And thanks to everyone who took the time to enter. I wish I was Oprah and could give you all a balance bike…and a sportsmobile… This giveaway has reminded me why I don’t watch sports. It’s too hard on me when everyone can’t be a winner. Not that your not all winners… it’s just… you know what I mean. You know you can always make your own slightly less cool version of a balance bike, right?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading everyones comments. Learning to ride a bike sounds like it was a major milestone (albeit at times traumatic) for many of you, thank you so much for sharing your stories.
Unfortunately I don’t remember anything about the day I learned to ride a bike. But I’ll never forget the day my son learned; I screamed so loud in my excitement I nearly sent him flying off the sidewalk in a panic. I was so proud, emotional containment was apparently just not an option.
Oh, and did I mention I was going to turn your answers into an informal not very scientific study? I did. Actually pretty interesting… Click to enlarge.
