  • My oldest was about 2, and when he wanted his training wheels off we rigid the pick and set the training wheels up on tuna cans and had him practice in the living room. It worked.
    My youngest was probably more like 4 or 5.

  • One of my daughters learned in record time, right after she turned 5. My other daughter did not get the hang of it until she was nearly 9. It's amazing to see the differences in siblings, wow.

  • Victoria is 3 1/2 and can ride her bike pretty well, with training wheels. She is however not ready for the training wheels to come off. She has been riding tricycles and bicycles at the daycare she used to go to since she was 2 years old.

  • at 3yo she got a balance bike & can ride that easily. she has rode a bike w/o training wheels for 1 day but we have not taken her big bike out again.. the balance bike (strider) is her favorite & we prefer it too sine its small/light so its easy to tote wherever we go.
