 My son will be 7 on Dec 10th!!

He got his first bike with training wheels around 3 1/2 (spring/summer time).  He started riding without training wheels at 5 1/2.  He picked both up immediately.

DD got her first bike last Christmas at 3 1/2.  She was riding it around within mins.  She's nearly 4 1/2 now and could do without training wheels if we tried but it's getting wet and cold so we'll do that in the Spring

 that would be a lot!  even with 2 kids, i refuse to buy things like bikes brand new.  my son's was a hand-me-down from an older friend and then we got my dd's from craigslist for $20 including a helmet!

We got ds1 a tricycle last year and he still loves it. Ds2 is 1 1/2 so he likes to play on it. Ds1 was so happy when dh gave him the bike. We went and got a helmet and knee/elbow pads today so he could ride it. :-)
