The Bikes Are Out!

Little Man had a balance bike for his birthday, and with last weekend being our first free one since he turned 2, we were determined to get out and get cycling. Who cared that it was raining, we were going!

Both kids were excited to be wearing their hats, and so desperate to get on their bikes, it was just lovely to see. Boo had hers for her third birthday nearly 2 years ago, but she’s barely been on it, other than in the garden. She loved it and did very well, especially as we could see that it needed adjusted (which was done as soon as we returned home, ready for our next, very soon I suspect!, outing).

Little Man adored his bike, and was beaming with pride!

They had a ride around, Little Man delighting in riding through puddles, Boo excited to be getting up speed!


And then we popped the bikes back in the car and spotted a nearby Horse Chestnut, so not wanting to miss an opportunity like that, we had a search around for conkers.

We were actually only there for just under an hour, but they were both so exhilarated by their adventures, and we were pleased that we didn’t allow the rain to stop play, as a little fresh air and drizzle was good for us all!

  1. Aww that looks lovely. Sometimes you don’t need to go out all day to have a good time. I always think they get tired more easily if they’re doing something new. We are yet to teach bike riding-bad mummy 🙁
    Lovely post #CountryKids

    1. I think you’re right, and we’d have struggled to find a whole day to do something, so better to make the most of an hour 🙂

  2. Oh we’re MASSIVE fans of balance bikes in our house, too. They’re so good at allowing the little ones to keep up with the big ones. This looks like a lovely time outside (and like you we’re making the most of the unusually good Sept weather) and just goes to show you don’t have to go far to enjoy the outdoors!

  3. Lovely to see them both on their bikes, they are growing up so fast, I really notice it in posts like this with them both off together. Well done for getting out in the face of the drizzle too. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids

  4. Love balance bikes in our house, they are fab! We got the wee girl one for her birthday and it was still a bit big for her, but it should be perfect now. Lovely to get out on the bikes, even just for an hour, great to see the kids zooming around! #CountryKids

  5. I love that you let your little ones play in the rain! I do too, but it’s few and far between without thunder and lightning here. And we are getting out three year old a very similar balance bike, just a different paint job! Glad you had a nice family outing!

  6. My children recently had new bikes for their birthdays and we are really enjoying going for a long ride at the weekend. I have been borrowing theirs and am really enjoying it too! It’s a wonderful way to explore and get some exercise #countrykids
