Without training wheels? Just wanting to get an idea of average ages- DS is 3.5 and rides well with training wheels and I think we should leave them for a while longer but DH thinks the sooner we get them off the less he will rely on them? I know there is no "right" age but just curious as to what others do?

When did your child learn to ride a bike

I think DS was about 6.
DD is going to take longer. She's such a tiny, petite little thing. She has a little bike with trainer wheels but doesn't have the strength to push them so she prefers to scooter to the park instead (she's 3.5).

DD got a bike with training wheels for her third birthday. DH taught her to ride though the training wheels when she was six.

Just before my 4th birthday. My Dad took me to a giant park, took the training wheels off and just let me go for it.

I took the training wheels off my DS's bike a couple of months ago and to my surprise he was off and going fine within about 15 minutes. He just turned 4 yesterday.

DS was 7. He's pretty cautious so wasn't keen to get the training wheels off before that. Once he was ready it literally took 10 minutes.
DD is nearly 5. I think her training wheels will be off within the next year.
