My son is 11 now and still does not know how to ride a bike. He usually tries once a year in the spring without success and gives up. My husband always uses the old method : holding on to the seat and running beside the bike. DO YOU HAVE A BETTER METHOD? He is not a non-active kid. He plays in a soccer and baseball league and dances competitive Hip Hop. He was shown how to ride a bike only from age 5 and obviously not the right way.
