Back in 2014, I wrote three posts where I mentioned The Boy Child’s difficulties with learning to ride a bike without stabilisers (you can find them here, here and here). So you might now think that I’m about to tell you that The Boy Child is fully-fledged on two wheels.
But we might have found a third way.
During our recent visit to Osterley Park, we noticed that there were adapted bikes for hire – trikes and side-by-sides – at a very reasonable price of £3 for two hours. The Boy Child was keen to try a trike and we were keen to encourage him.
Watching The Boy Child have a fun time trying to keep up with Tilly made me realise something. I shouldn’t be embarrassed that he still can’t ride a bike. He’s not and in the grand scheme of things, what does it matter?
