Learning to ride a Penny Farthing
12 Nov 2015 Filed in: Other | Kids
Our five year old has started to show interest in learning to ride the baby Penny Farthing.
He fits it now and started to ride it last week. You can see the footage here: https://youtu.be/XX3muGGmaXI
Then today he wanted to have another turn. This time he balanced really well and was almost cornering without any help.
He understands how to stop the bike using the pedals (remember that Penny Farthings don’t have brakes!).
Next time we might take him out on the open footpath so he has more room to ride. It gets a bit tricky on the small deck.
Here is the footage of him riding by himself. https://youtu.be/XhZPb6xL2eQ
