Childhoods are full of firsts: first words, first steps and the first day of school. This past weekend Red Tricycle along with Wheel Kids Bicycle Club and PLAE Kids Shoes helped pint-size riders achieve another milestone: riding for the first time without training wheels. Scroll through the photos below to get the scoop on this fun event.

Wheel Kids Bicycle Club and Red Tricycle families flocked to the Panhandle for the introductory bike riding class aimed at cruisers 2.5 to five years old. Wheel Kids provided the bikes, helmets and safety instruction while the kids brought their enthusiasm.

The lesson focused on promoting movement, balance and socialization through challenges and games such as red light green light, riding in circles and squares and working their way through obstacle courses.

After a couple of hours learning to balance on two wheels the kids worked up an appetite. On hand were plenty of Annie’s Bunny Grahams, GoGo Squeeze Applesauce packets and water.
