So our 4 year old son has now graduated to his “big boy” Islabike from his balance bike, bypassing stabilisers completely and there’s no stopping him now. He’ll happily spend his entire time riding in circles around the street outside the house.
Despite the obvious dad pride involved in the transition, I have to admit that I’m going to miss the sight of him padding along on the bright red balance bike, legs going like the clappers and seemingly always going for the most difficult line off road.
On the plus side, it’s not long now before he’ll be joining me on proper rides, and, by the looks of it, possibly beating me to the top of climbs!
So some photos for the archive:
