    I don't have a 6 year old but my 3 & 1/2 year old rides her bike well with training wheels.

    I don't think you need to take off training wheels until they are ready otherwise it just makes them scared of their bike

    My older two could ride without training wheels when they were six but my current 6 yr old can ride only with training wheels, same for miss nearly 5.

    My 6 yr old rides really well without training wheels. She was 5.5 when we took them off. I was a bit surprised as she can be clumsy,but she's doing well.

    I'm 22 and can't ride a bike
    Well...I've tried twice and done alright, but I wouldn't say I'm proficient.

    My 8 year old had her training wheels off just after she was 7.

    My younger one is 5 and rides well with training wheels. Hers should be off by the time she is 6.

    We've just taken the training wheels off for our 6 year old. He still needs some more practice.

    My Godson's training wheels came off 3 months before he was 3!!! Most physically confident kid I've ever known. Now at 6 he is doing jumps at BMX tracks.
