We’re kind of waiting on that. One twin is super confident, the other one won’t use brakes going down hill then gets off and pushes! 🙂

Wow! Mind you, I’d be the same, I have a bike but I never ride it. I leave it to the boys!

I’ve just bought a second hand bike from a friend, but we’ve not been out yet. I was kind of hoping it would be a Daddy and boys thing 🙂
