un petit garçon et son vélo

little boy and his bicycle

riding uphill on the uneven cobblestones of Rue Mouffetard...
This is a challenging venue for learning how to ride a two-wheeled bike.

On this Sunday afternoon, 
it was likely that they were headed to Luxembourg Garden 
with the soft chalky-dirt paths, 
perfect for a little one to practice the art of "balance."

Rue Mouffetard
75005, Paris

Such a fun, cute shot, Genie!! Reminds me of when my four were little and learning to ride!! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

This little fellow is doing well - going up this particular street can be awkward even with shoes on! I can imagine most children from around my area kicking up a fuss if they had to scoot up Rue Mouffetard on 2 wheels. And it can't have been easy for the accompanying adult too!!
I trust you had a lovely St Valentine's day. Bisous

Such a cute photo! Being a parent in Paris is such a different experience (and being a child is, as well)!! Bon weekend!!

Adorable. I see a lot of little kids riding wooden bicycles around here. They don't have pedals and they don't use training wheels any more; they just have the bikes low enough for the kids to push the ground with their feet. They way they learn to balance and get used that tippy feeling.

Such a good slice of life image, Genie!

He's awfully little to be riding a two-wheeler. Hope his maman has a strong back. :~}

That is a great shot.
