So Madeleine learned to ride a two wheeler on her *exact* 4.5 year old birthday, that is December 22nd. Somehow, my girl, and her competitive nature heard tell that someone around her age was riding a bike WITHOUT training wheels and she just had to do it herself. First she started with a balance bike and quickly moved on to a full on two wheeler. She was so very proud of herself and now that she has graduated to a 16 inch she is a serious cyclist!
For the record, Max learned just a few months after his sister but isn't quite so sure footed as she.
