Riding a Bike

Riding a bicycle is a fantastic  way to coordinate the left and
right sides of the body. It develops motor planning (the
ability to plan and execute novel movement), balance and
most importantly is fun as well as helping us  and birds to
keep in good cardiovascular health.
 
Toddlers often learn to coordinate their legs to propel ride-
on toys and typically learn to ride a tricycle with pedals
between 3.2 and 4.4 years of age. They can maneuver around
obstacles, turn, stop and start. I don't know if this parrot
can do all of that,  but he is pretty impressive on his wheels!
