Should a 3-year-old ride?

Hello everyone. As I got my son a bike, my 3-year-old little daughter also insists on riding a bike. Their school is 2 miles afar from home. Should I give her what she wished for and let them both commute to school together by bikes? Thanks a lot.

    I am not sure I would let her big brother be responsible for supervising her (depending on his age).

    Bit young to do this I think. Might be ok in the morning but come home time she will probably really tired. Might be best to build up to it, parents at local school quite often bring the bike for the return journey only.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Isn’t your daughter at age 3 a bit young to be going to school.

    Thinking about it this thread is clearly a wind up.

    A bike with 14-inch wheels is appropriate for riders aged 3 to 5. This bike comes with a rather small frame as it has 14-inch wheels. Therefore, if your kid’s height is around 40 – 43 inches tall (100 cm – 110 cm), they can maneuver a 14-inch bicycle quite well.
