I'm trying to teach my 12 year old son how to ride a bike without the training wheels. I walk along beside him and hold the saddle and guide him, but he is just so wobbly on the thing. Do you have any suggestions? I've attached a photo so that maybe you can show me if I'm doing something wrong.
Whoa, you do have your work cut out for you. The lad is only 12, eh? Have you had his glands checked recently? At any rate - you might start by taking off his aerobars....I don't think he's going to need them quite yet. By the way, your boy bears a stricking resemblence to Scott Bakula...
The other night, my wife and I were driving downtown to go to a show, when out of nowhere, several cyclists rode right out in the middle of the street, causing us to nearly hit them! It scared Brenda and me nearly half to death! When we got out of the car, the cyclists started verbally attacking us! Someone even caught the whole incident on film! What gives?
You obviously encountered a few members of the Banana Bicycling Clan (BBC)...a proud group that seek to protect the fruit that is most important to all cyclists for its rich source of potassium and its totability.
Well if his necklace charm resembles anything like the real bike you bought him, there's no wonder you've got problems. His friends are probably making fun of him for riding around like an old Danish man, which only encourages him to act out more! You've got to try to speak his language and let him explore the little 'gangsta' inside of him. In other words, you need to pimp that ride....Try something like this instead...
