Walk Forty-nine – Xavier on his ‘like bike’

xandbike

A few scribbles of Robin and Xavier coming up the lane to the woods. Xavier did the whole two miles! The bike is a novel design – no pedals, but two wheels, and supposedly much better than stabilisers at getting children to ride a proper two wheeler bike.

I need one of those on Lantau! Can I have his when he has a proper bike?

Darling feel to these. 2mi must have taken a considerable amount of time on his little trike. Good for you! I loved those slow wanders with my little ones checking out every bug and leaf.

Rachel, so long as you collect!
Sue, I had to run to catch up with him apart from the uphill bit, which is where I overtook and looked back. Going back and downhill I was very fortunate that hubby is very fit and could keep up with him!

Tor learnt to ride a little two wheeler in the same way, ignoring the pedals until he could balance and wizz along just pushing with his feet on the ground. It took about 6 weeks with no encouragement as he was near blind at the time and it wasn't on our list of ideal activities. He was very determined.
