Are you happy with it or not? What do other children of her age do? It sounds like you're not happy, in which case the answer is no. TBH I think 6 is a bit young to be riding off by herself. Why not get the whole family out on bikes? Easy enough to get attachments to adult bikes for the little ones.

I think if she has just learnt to ride she won't have the proper reflexes in case something unexpected happen. So I wouldn't let her yet.
But then my first is 6.5 and may be I am a bit PFB too.

We live in a similar cul-de-sac and my two (almost 6 and 7) play out on their bikes, but they are not allowed past a certain house on the road, and they know that. I can always see them from my window/front door, and there are lots of similar age children playing out too, with equally vigilant parents. So it depends how happy you are with it, really; at first, no matter what age, you will be glued to the window, I guarantee it smile.
