when I taught my daughter to ride and we took off the training wheels I walked beside her on the sidewalk with my hand gently resting on her shoulder, which gave her comfort, and then just started to lift my hand off her shoulder for longer and longer until she rode away from me. It was cool to see.

She wore a helmet when she rode.

Here's how I did it and it works well: Take off the training wheels and the pedals, lower the seat so that the feet touch the ground, then let them start slow by riding the bike kinda like a scooter. Just roll a short distance while they kind of walk it with their feet. Once they start to get the balance and steering down, let them roll it a little way with their feet up. After a bit they'll get the hang of moving with it and roll a little farther each time. Once they get to where they can push off and cruise a little way, say 20 feet or so, put the pedals back on and start 'em off. I had the neighbor's kid riding in 30 minutes doing it this way.

This is what i did to my son, he was 2yrs old when i first got him a bike then took the training wheels off the very next year, then got him a pocket bike that they sale at academy for $220.00 and then i got him a bigger bike and now he's about to be 5 in may.

sorry i'm 23 and i like to keep my kids bussy with things to do...

once you see your dauther not using the training wheels then its time to take them off.

when i saw my kid that he wasn't using them when he was 3 then i went and took them off and pushed his in the middle of the road and said "GO FOR IT!!"
he went all the way down the street and came back....... IT WAS AWESOME seen him just ride that like it was nothing.

edith: once you see her balance and not using the side wheels then she's good to go. GFTW!

yep , I noticed when we rode last saturday , I had the wheels where they only touched the ground if she leaned to one side too much.
So she was doing pretty good , I just curious how she will do this weekend with the wheels totaly off.

I made my kids gear up and I ran beside them on the street. Too hard for them to ride on grass. Just tell her to take it easy on you

yeah , in a way I 'm proud of her for wanting the training wheels off , but at the same time I'm scared thinking she is going to take a hard fall.
She like to do everything fast . lol
