My 5 Year Old REFUSES to ride her big girl bike, even with training wheels

My 5-year-old got a 2-wheeler (with training wheels) for her birthday. The training wheels were initially set too high and she fell off a couple times and skinned her knees. Now I can't get her to touch the thing. She had bike day at summer camp today and she insisted on taking her tricycle. Should I push the issue with the 2-wheeler or just let it go and hope she comes back to it? I don't want to scare her off from it, or make it a point of stress for her, but she's really tall so the trike isn't going to last too much longer.
