I actually didn’t do this for quite a while. Most of the kids I knew could ride a bike by at the latest around 3rd grade, most earlier than that. Personally I learn to ride over the summer before 5th grade because I realised that we had to do bike ed in 5th grade and I didn’t want to be the loser who couldn’t ride a bike. I didn’t even get my parents to teach me, I mean I did but ultimately it wasn’t them who got me there, my neighbour and probably my best childhood friend actually taught me to ride a bike, which I think is pretty cool
