You ask/You answer: What if his mum is dead against our son riding?

Published: 26 March 2012

Updated: 20 November 2014

I ride and my son (now 14) wants to ride when he's old enough, but his mum's dead set against it.

He's a level-headed boy and we haven't had any bad experiences with bikes to influence us. What should I do?

  • I crashed on diesel six weeks ago, I'm still waiting on the insurer to pay out on the bike. I haven't ridden since and my confidence has plummeted. I feel like this might be it for me and bikes. Can anyone offer any advice before I make a decision? Answer here.
