The training wheels come off in 2014!

Keenan2May always brings rain and new students to the Bike Whisperer.  There are several scheduled, but we’ve been dodging raindrops to get lessons in this week.  Yesterday, I had a lot of fun with the first student of the year to learn to ride on just two wheels:  Keenan.

Keenan is nine-years old and came along with his brother Noah (who is five and also started lessons).  I made sure to tell Keenan that I didn’t learn until I was 10 and he was one year ahead of me!  Keenan learned quickly how to ride, but needed to learn to stop!  He is a true dare-devil as he’s the very first to ask me to not hold him or the bike as I run alongside.  He knew when he was ready to go solo!

Often times, the (second?) best part of teaching these kids is the email I get after they get home.  An excerpt from his mom’s email:

We are so excited that Keenan is finally riding his bike.  We got home and found his friend waiting for him and the two of them have been riding their bikes together all afternoon. I hope, in the same way Noah will see them, and be motivated to learn in a few months. We will bring him back.

The Bike Whisperer’s Pledge

I can teach your child to ride a bike without training wheels. When you've reached a point where you need help, contact The Bike Whisperer. The third and fourth wheels will no longer be necessary.
