For her birthday last year we gave S a bicycle.
She was initially very excited and enjoyed whizzing around on it and then over time it developed a problem with the stabilisers which led to a balance issue and the inevitable falling off.
So S has been bike less for a while. We had been keeping our eyes peeled for a replacement and last weekend G spotted one for sale at a local animal charity's fundraising day.
As you can see S is very pleased. with it.

Unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me whilst we were out last weekend so I couldn't record her first ride without stabilisers. On the way back to the car G asked her if she wanted to give it a try, she got on and was away. Simple as that. We were amazed!

Yesterday, after buying a bike rack from a work colleague of G's, we loaded up it up and went off to the park.

And here is S whizzing around loving her new bike. You can't really see the cheeky little grin she has on her face, but she was looking very pleased with herself! It was lovely to watch.

And here are my 2 men in green looking very sporty on their bikes too.

Its lovely when they have that bit of independence when the stabilisers go.

Ahhh, well done S. A lovely bike too. I remember running up and down the street holding on to the back of the saddles of my two and letting go when they weren't suspecting it. Glad it was a tad easier for you.
