Another milestone reached – Cycling on a 2 wheels. Took a few sessions to get her to this stage.
Yining’s previous bicycle was a 12” which she has out-grown due to her height. We had a hard time choosing this current new bike for her actually. She was a little too tall for 14” and will probably out-grow the bicycle soon so in the end we decided on the 16” despite it being slightly too big.
Another reason why we chose this bike is because of the weight. It weighs only 9.6kg, compared to the common ones which will weight 12 – 14kg. Considering 6 year olds’ body weight of between 20 – 22kg, a 12kg bike is about 60% of their own weight. That 10% less weight is quite significant for them. We got this at Decathlon Singapore for SGD $149, not too pricy, so we went with this.
Now the next thing is to get her to be more stable and teach her more on safety. Once she’s done, we can go cycling together for more adventures. 🙂
