I had a bit of trouble as she's a little big for kids bikes and a little small for adults bikes.
What we got her was a "Veloce Womens 700c 24 Speed Flat Bar Road" Her first real bike.
She has a bit of trouble getting on and off, but no problems at all at ridding it, in fact for her first ride I walked(ran ) so I could help her get on and off. The trouble was that even though she was in the bottom gear of the triple front she still disappeared into the distance. She love's it already.
Another Pic with my youngest who insisted on being in the picture.

Pretty sure that's an issue on your side, chief

Gee, just as well you didn't put the handlebars in a more aero position - she'd have rocketed off the planet Once they get over the "I can't put my feet on the ground" stage, there's no holding them back !
Nice buy Martin - I trust daughter and you will have many happy hours riding together.
