Tom's first bike and first lesson (all of 10 minutes!)


There's a family bike ride coming up soon with our Scout Group, which reminded me that Jack hadn't been on his bike in AGES - not since it had needed adjusting and we hadn't got round to it (#BadParents). So I dragged it out of storage, dusted off the cob webs, and pumped up the tyres.

But Jack has out grown it!

Good news for Tom though, because it's just the right size for him and hardly used. Bad news for me because that means a new bike for Jack - and because I was daft enough to go shopping for it with George in tow - it's a small bike for George too. Kaching! Thank God Freddie is too small to want one!

Tom was delighted to have a bike of his own, even though he has never ridden a day in his life. I got the helmet fitted to his head, made sure the saddle etc was right for him, and we had a go on the street (don't worry folks, it's at the dead end of a dead end, no traffic). He wouldn't let me let go and he's shaky on peddling, but it was ok for a first go. Especially without stabilizers. I think a few weekends and evenings practice and we'll get there.

He's a nervous nelly but tried so hard! Jack and George have to wait till tomorrow for theirs.
