  • I was 7. I remember feeling extremely embarrassed because I couldn't do it until then. One day I became determined because I was tired of being made fun of. I guess I just kept trying until I got it. I haven't been on a bike in like 10 years lmao.

  • My oldest son was 6, and my youngest son was 4. He saw his older brother riding without training wheels and wanted to try it so we let him and he did better without the training wheels than with them.

  • We are the opposite- my older was riding by 5, my younger was about 8! He had no interest in it and would rather skate or ride a scooter. Not sure why, but we decided it was time to learn to ride at 8 and my husband took him to a parking lot away from everyone and he was up and going in 15 minutes!

  • 6 and 8 - only because my ex would never let my kids try and when I finally left him I was too busy working. My then fiancee, now husband, taught both of them.
