How do you teach a child to ride a bike? Give them an intuitive one. Apparently, once mastered, she'll move straight to a pedaled two-wheeler, skipping the precarious training wheel stage. (That's what the balance biker parents in the park claim anyway.)
Straining and strangling aside, ev really can carry her wheels all by herself! When ev can do it by herself, life is easy! This parent-free bike riding experience makes this balance bike a best purchase!
