MyOldest has loved riding his bike since he learned how. He has voluntarily taught his 2 younger siblings to ride without training wheels and is currently teaching the 3rd in line (5 year old BigMan).
He likes skateboarding with his younger brother sometimes, but this, this biking, it’s what he really loves. And his brother, likewise, will ride bikes with him for awhile before going back to his first love, skating. I love that they compromise and enjoy each others’ hobbies.
We had lots of yard in the country and some old beat up rusty bikes that he used to ride everyday. Since moving to the city we’ve had one bike stolen and the others were just too beat up and bent to ride. Plus, there’s no room here, short of the road and we don’t allow that. We also had no way to transport bikes to ride anywhere else. But now we’ve finally been able to buy them bikes, store them safely, and have the big van that we can load all 5 bikes into and take places, like this cool dirt track. I’m so thankful to be able to give him back his passion.
