We took the kiddos to Target yesterday. Ben, 6, used some of his xmas money to buy a 16" bike for $35. Peter, 10, used $88 of his money to buy a 21 speed 24" bike. FYI - if you buy a bike at Target they come already assembled. We stopped a the park on the way home and Peter, who wasn't that keen on getting a bike because he doesn't know how to ride, learned to ride in about 10 minutes. I guess he just wasn't ready when he had tried in the past. By the end of the hour he was riding in figure 8's. Ben, 6, had his daddy help him with his bike but he hasn't learned to ride it yet. We'll keep at it and he'll get there soon. We had bought training wheels for Ben's bike and when we got home DH put them on and they won't work with Ben's bike. Poor Ben upset himself crying. He'll get over it though and the training wheels will have to be returned to the store. Peter's bike is just the right size for me and even though it has been 25 years since I rode a bike - I still can. :dance: Even, little Sam, 3, got a bike but it had to be assembled so he didn't get to ride it till we got home.
