Gavin first wanted to learn how to ride without training wheels when we were in Germany. Dad tried that with him, but he wasn't quite ready. As soon as we got to Crete and the bikes unloaded, he saw his brother riding without training wheels and wanted to try again. Only this time, dad wasn't the one who helped him. Tristan taught Gavin how to ride in 1 day. When they came in and asked dad to take off the training wheels on Gavin's bike, dad obliged. This is what it looked like. Guess it really helps having a big brother to help you out.
