    My DD can. She wanted them off herself and pretty much hopped on her bike and she was away.

    Default Can or could your 6 year old ride a bike?

    My two younger boys were both 3 when they insisted on having their training wheels off. Both persevered until they mastered riding without them. With no help (they didn't want it) I was nervous about them falling, but both are such sporty outdoor boys with no fear! They worked it out within a couple of days. My eldest DS was about 6, and my DD was 5 (she wasn't impressed her brother done it before her at 3, so quickly learnt as well)
    All learnt around the backyard on the grass to begin with in case of falls.

    We took DD1's training wheels off just after 4.5 and she was doing good then outgrew that bike and can't ride the bigger one without training wheels yet - bit harder to handle

    DD2 couldn't pedal a bike or trike at the age of 5, by 6 she was pedaling her bike with training wheels with lots & lots of encouragement. She was riding without training wheels the weekend before her 7th birthday.

    DD3 could pedal a trike & bike at 2 years old and at 4 she is close to riding without training wheels, DH has just bent them up a bit so they don't sit flat on the ground, every now and then she is riding with both training wheels off the ground - they are a bit of a safety net so when she wobbles they stop her falling.

    nope without training wheels, the people around me are to arrogant and hog the paths(even bike deticated paths) and the road users are flat out staying in their lanes so we do not go riding

    My 6 year old has been riding a bike without training wheels since she was 4.5 years. Since she was 5 she has been able to ride on roads, and she rides around 10km without tiring.My 5 year old never had training wheels. She went from a balance bike to a push bike with no training wheels just after her 4th birthday. She can ride a fair distance but refuses to learn how to brake properly so she isn't allowed on roads.My 2 year old has my Dd2's balance bike and will never have training wheels. I hate them now...my DD1 had a very scary fall on an uneven path where the wheels couldn't touch tje ground and she fell, rolled.down a hill and landed in the gutter of a very busy road. We took the training wheels off that day and taught her how to ride without them and.declared that we would never use them again. It scared the crap out of us.

    My ds started riding with no training wheels just before his 7th birthday. Before then he just had no interest (or coordination)

    My first hasn't the best sporting ability but his trainers were off at 4.5 and his little brother has a balance bike he loves and goes about 1.5m already with feet off the ground at just 1 so he will never get trainers.
