Easy Rider. Learning to ride a bike

30 Aug

Isn’t riding a bike everyone’s favourite past time? I love the air of freedom I have every time I jump on a bike and speed away. As a kid it was along the Volga river and through the tiny paths between the fields of crops, as a Londoner now it’s on a ‘Boris bike’ through the Hyde Park: looking at the lake, breathing in fresh evening grass and spotting green parrots on the trees…

Inevitably, one must learn to ride first to enjoy it. My 5 year old has finally taken the plunge and got on the bike. A small but VITAL tip for any parent: start on the grass and the whole experience will be more enjoyable, quick and painless. He certainly loved it and got very good at it very fast!
