  • My almost 10 year-old learn last summer right after his 9th birthday. It took just a few hours. My daughter who will be 9 next week is still hasn't gotten it yet, but I'm sure by the end of this summer she'll have it.

  • My guy learned in Nov, so he was just over 5 years old. It took about 2 hours. I think they'll learn when they are ready.

  • sahminIL2 - THANK YOU! Mine are 6 and 7 and haven't mastered the two wheeler yet. Couple of inlaws have said they were behind and slow...wanted to smack them upside their heads. Thank you,

  • Not very long. My DD tried for about 30 minutes to an hour and had it down :) My second DD was a little bit slower, but still picked it up quickly.

  • Mine pretty much did it in a day or two. Both at the age of 5. They are still mastering it. My 6 yo still falls occasionally.
