I have been failing to teach my daughter to ride a bike since she was 6. She had a real phobia about falling off and would never even ride with stabilisers! As I'm trying to get my wife into cycling (mainly so I'll be the faster rider for a change! Well for a while maybe!) my daughter is starting to show an interest again after years of not even trying. I suppose I should add that the phobia relates to an overprotective grandma who she lived with for her first five years! Anyway, she is too old for the balance bike method so is the usual method of getting her to ride whilst I hold the seat going to be the right way now she's older? It hasn't worked in the past! Probably won't help that the only bike I have her size is a raleigh chopper! Advice much appreciated!
