From Balance to Pedal Bike

At 18 months Will was tip-toes on his balance bike. By the time he could reach the ground at 2 years old he was cruising along the driveway keeping up with the bigger girls on their scooters. He is now 3 years old and scooting along on that balance bike for 3 miles; we walk, jog or rolloerblade along side. It won't be long until we are on 10 mile trail rides on a pedal bike. The motor pattern for the balance bike is the same for the pedal bike. The transition is seamless. Once Will figures out the braking system and he weighs a bit more to control the heavier bike he will be off the driveway and on the trail. No training wheels for this kid!
