About a month ago, Mike took the training wheels off of Lucas' bike, and they've been practicing. Tonight they had a breakthough...check out the video:
Lucas is pretty solid on flat straightaways, but he's too short to touch the ground while sitting on the seat, so starting and stopping are tough. It's hilarious watching him ride because he just laughs and yells "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" the whole time he's riding. Just in a few rides tonight he seemed to gain more confidence and was able to ride down the entire length of our street (1/4 mile?) without stopping. Daddy was drenched in sweat after chasing him down the street (it's humid tonight). Daddy has to stay pretty close because Lucas can't stop on his own without crashing since his feet don't reach the ground.
