Local Motion uses the "balance bike" method to help kids lose the training wheels and learn to ride in just a few hours. Here is a video from Bike New York about how this method works and why it is so effective:
For more information about how the balance bike method works, and how to teach your own children how to ride using this method, go to our Balance Bike page.

A challenging double-century that began in 1984, the 100/200 (a.k.a. 200-on-100) spans Vermont, north to south, following scenic Route 100. The first 100 miles roll by fairly quickly, but save your reserves, as the climbs start in the second half of the ride, culminating in the 12-mile Mt. Snow climb. When you finish, you'll truly understand why so many cyclists say "Vermont ain't flat!" Register at http://100-200.org
