Do you let your kids ride their bikes through the neighborhood?

I remember when I was a kid, we would always ride our bikes around through our neighborhood, meeting up with friends and just having a good time.  These days though, I'm so paranoid about letting my kids out to ride their bikes without me being outside with them.  

So, do you allow your kids to ride their bikes around the neighborhood?  Do you insist on being outside with them?  At what age would you allow your child to ride around the neighborhood without constant supervision?

When I was a kid, that is how I met my BFF...riding bikes in the neighborhood.

No, we live in a rural area don't have any sidewalks.  My DD rides her atv on our property and rides her bike at the park.

That's so cool!  I wish there were more kids in my neighborhood.

Well, riding an ATV has to be a lot of fun!

How old is he?  Do you think that you'll allow distance increases as he gets older?  1/2 a block would be very boring for a 14 year old.

My children are not old enough yet. They are 2 and 6 weeks old LOL. I probably won't let them be unsupervised on their bikes until about 13.
