This summer holidays Otto has learnt to ride a bike, I tried teaching him a while ago but he just wasn't interested enough, but at the start of the holiday Lola was kean to try so I took the pedals off this bike and she trooted around in a hobby horse style. At first Otto said he wasn't interested in trying cycling and would learn after once he could drive a car! But through Lola's trying to balance he started to have a go and together they have came on go. Once they were up on there own balance I then took them to the beach and found little ramp of sand in the middle of the beach and pushed then off the ramp (about 200mm) and they soon got the hang of it. I used to take the mountain board wth a bike to the beach and they would take 4-5 turns in riding the bike then the board, it worked well. Then once they had grasped that tried Otto on tarmac which he coped with but Lola needed abit more effort, so found a bigger ramp on a grass field in Cefn Sidan - Pembrey country park which they would hurtle down then across the field. Once Lola has grasped that moved on the empty car parks. Otto has now moved on to tracks as narrow as a footpath but Lola can't even cope with the containment of a single track road, so she needs alittle bit more coaching!
