A little girl wants to visit her father AND she wants to learn to ride her bicycle, and it seems to her that that is the perfect reason to persuade him to help her learn! She has all the trouble with balancing and speed control that every learner remembers - but at last she is whipping down the path in the park screaming: 'It's all right - you can let go now!' But Dad sees his daughter speeding away and he wonders: will she really come back to him?
