Look Ma, No Pedals!

Look Ma, No Pedals!

Zella got a new bike. It’s not the typical bike you would think to get a 2.5 year old. In fact, taking a good look at the bike, you’ll notice something is missing.

Pedals.

This is a balance bike made by Strider. It supposedly helps kids learn how to control their balance on a bike without the additional task of learning how to pedal. A really interesting concept. Makes complete sense to me. And seeing it in action? I was sold on it after witnessing our friend’s kid scooting around on one like it was a natural thing to do. And that kid was just barely 3 years old!

After seeing how quickly Zella has taken to her bike, I can’t wait to see how she progresses. Hopefully she is able to skip the training wheels phase and jump right into the pedal-like-crazy stage.
