A Strong Coffee: As Easy As Riding A Bike

As Easy As Riding A Bike




As easy as riding a bike. Where on earth did that phrase come from. Riding a bike is pretty hard. I am still rubbish at turning right, and much happier doing a route where you only turn left! I had started to wonder if big man would ever ride a bike, but I am pleased to say that at the end of the summer holidays he finally managed to go stabilizer free. I was beginning to feel a failure as a mother for him not being able to do it. Trying to help a child ride a bike takes a lot of help, and trying to do this with middle and little man in tow was pretty impossible. Luckily Daddy has been around to help big man at weekends and although a bit more practice on corners is required, he can now say he can ride a bike. Which is great considering we are thinking of getting him a new bigger one for his birthday.

Riding a bike is not an easy thing to do, you're right. My two older boys are already much better than I am now, I've always been a bit rubbish ;) Congratulations to him for mastering it x

Fantastic! None of my children have mastered riding a bike until quite late. I fell off mine the other day and I wasn't even moving! Lovely post

Brilliant news, well done Big Man. That's awesome. He must be so chuffed! We've not reached this stage yet but I can't imagine learning to ride a bike is that easy! You definitely do forget how to ride one too, I'm rubbish now! Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory
