|Trail-A-Biking to Science World!|
Oliver took him for a ride to a park--probably about 3 km round trip--which went well. Hardly any wobbling, & he's started keeping his feet on the pedals. Linnaeus now calls it his 'one wheel bike'.
Here's a short interview with Linnaeus about his ride Sunday:
How did you like your new Trail-A-Bike?Good.
Can you tell me about it?My trailer bike has one wheel. It has pedals.
What did you do on the bike?I rided on the bike. I goed to the park. And Papa showed me something. We went fast.
Monday we rode the Trail-A-Bike to Science World, about a 15-minute trip from home. I found it even easier to use when riding faster, but still could feel the trailer pulling at my seat post at the slower speeds as we were riding uphill home. I think because the attachment point is so high--just under my seat--that it might always feel that way. What's changed is how comfortable I am with it. Definitely feels less disconcerting now & I don't think that the wobble is enough to unbalance me.
I'm happy that Linnaeus took to the Trail-A-Bike so easily. I think it'll be a good choice for us until he can ride farther on his own. We often bike 10-12 km round trip for picnics & other outings--way too far for a little kid on their own bike. The Trail-A-Bike is going to be a great way to get him to preschool or to the local waterparks in the summer.
