It was back in 1993 when I was 8 years old that I first learnt to ride a bike. It took me quite a few weeks to get the hang of keeping my balance, all my friends could already ride a bike and I felt a bit left behind. I must admit it took me longer then everyone else, because I was scared of falling off, so it took me longer to learn. I learnt by riding up and down my street. My sister also learnt to ride her bike at the same time but she was only 6 at the time. I don’t remember what type of bike my first kids bike was, but I remembering it being pink and white.

Most of my friends had BMX bikes. This was the bike of the 90’s. And even more than 20 years later, I think my favourite bike is a BMX.



For this Christmas just gone, we bought Caitlin her first proper bike. She did have a small kids Peppa Pig bike but she out grow this. So we got her a brand new pink BMX. Yeah, a BMX, which is apparently the bike from the 90’s, but I much prefer this one, to one of the new fancy electric bikes. They actually scare me, and I would be terrified to ride one and there is no-way I would pay £1000 for a bike!

Here’s a few pics of Caitlin riding her bike.

  1. My son it just at the stage where he’s wanting to ride his bike (he’s 4). I remember getting my first ever bike at that age for Christmas. I also remember being extremely proud when I was showing people I could ride without stablisers, and couldn’t understand why they were all laughing at me (it was because I was wobbling around so much they were amazed I managed to stay on!) I really look forward to teaching my sons how to ride a bike, although maybe not so much the grazed knees from falling off!

  2. I don’t think I got my first bike until being pre-teen. my 5 year old has one but never rides it. I need to change that this Spring x

  3. What about the iconic chopper, my son loves his bmx, he’s always liked his bikes, he was riding one without stabilisers at 3, my daughter is 5 and is the total opposite, she has a peppa pig bike and pedals it for two minutes once every few months then doesn’t bother xxx
