Naturally on the cautious side with new activities, Rascal hopped straight on her new balance bike and has hardly hopped off it since!
For anyone who hasn't seen one of these before, a balance bike is just like a normal bike, but it doesn't have any pedals. It teaches children the balance skills that they need to use a traditional bike without having to worry about pedals. From everything that I have heard, this makes the transition to a big bike pretty painless.
Admittedly Rascal does have a little friend who owns a balance bike, but as far as I am aware, Rascal had only looked on from afar and had not dared to give it a go.
Very proud that within a few short hours of owning her new bike, Rascal was scooting down a grassy embankment with both her feet off the ground and a huge grin on her face. Not only that, but she was not put off by the couple of tumbles that she had, she just jumped back on her bike and headed off again.
