X was 4 years, 1 month, 2 weeks and 5 days’ old when we conducted his first cycling class.
After the cycling session at ECP the weekend before, I realized he was finally tall enough to stand on tiptoe whilst on the bicycle. Hence, we removed the training wheels.
He was very unreceptive about trying but I played cheat. I showed him Z’s past videos. Z was 4 years and 7 months’ old when he learned to cycle on 2 wheels. After much persuasion, X had no choice but to agree.
He alternated being sporting and being spoilt about learning. Eventually, he managed to cycle through 3 seconds with balance. It was definitely a lot more tears and whines than at Z’s time. Well, at least we did it!
