got my daughter rideing today :D really chuffed as shes be quite scared of it for a long time, every year the bike comes out we have a few tries and she backs off. this year shes been sitting on my cross bar on the way home from school and began to enjoy it.
I took her to the park today and in 5 min she was doing laps, she must of got the balance while riding with me.
we bought her sunday tickets to camp bestival as a reward 8)

great day. i remember my daughter learning to ride....that was '92. she wanted a bike like in the mags. trust her lo like the klein pic. i put 5 gears and bar ends on a small bmx frame and painted it pink/purple linear fade.
she was talking about how much her infant school friends thought her bike was cool on sunday when she came over. i never realised at the time i was making a memory she would carry in her head for the rest of her life.... 8)

watching her reminded me that any object no matter how big or small that you try to avoid immediately becomes a bike magnet.
