Ok, I know she's a bit behind some of your more experienced cycling children, but I took my second youngest out on the road for the first time today. Usually we stick to the cycle path (shared use no traffic) but as she's done the bikeability thing at school and got the badge to prove it, I thought we should give it a go. We only went a couple of miles but she managed a roundabout, couple of junctions and lights and a couple of right turns across traffic (obviously waiting for the traffic to pass!) She did really well. She was in front and behind me equally, but I'm still not sure what was better/easiest for either of us. Coming home I followed her and made sure she knew how to make decisions at turns etc, and apart from her forgetting which side of the road to be on just as we approached our house!! Fortunately with nothing coming! She was spot on.
