In the past we lived in a place where it was next to impossible for James to learn how to ride his bike. Everyone seemed to think that the speed on our road was 50 instead of the posted 20. Therefore that didn't lead to much safety.
Sure, we took James a couple times to our old churhc parking lot to teach him to ride his bike but not being able to ride it everyday just didn't make it any fun for him.
Fast forward to today -- he might be "7" but he can ride his bike now and he is PROUDER THAN EVER about it!
