Gears that is. Remember, this boy road a bike on his own for the very first time just a couple of days ago. A sweet little bike that he’d long outgrown and only rode the one time (we’re now calling it a magic bike).
That bike was donated to our local bike shop yesterday (it is the drop-off location for a bikes for Haiti program), and we picked up a new second-hand bike with 24 inch wheels, a big step up. I was a bit nervous that it would be too big, after the tiny little ride he’d got going on, but silly me, what do I know about a determined nine-year old boy.
He’s already skidding through gravel in a skilful way, just like he’s watched his older brother do for years.
