Did you enter the Great Bike Giveaway this year? It is a great contest by the Friendship Circle where families can enter their child/young adult to win an adaptive bike. The contest is over now and I had fun voting for the kids who entered. They gave away eight different types of bikes, including a tandem bike that would be perfect for riding with Tommy.
I thought about entering for a minute, but Tom is still on the small side. I think he needs some time to grow into a real bike like that. Maybe next year, or even the year after. I would hate to enter and have Tom not be totally into bike riding.
Right now he has a tricycle that has a steering handle on the back. This lets him feel independent but gives us a way to steer him out of danger. Our current backyard is like a cliff so this is necessary! Our new neighborhood only has about eight houses built so far, which makes for a nice quiet road. I could never take Tom out on our busy, narrow street on his bike. But soon we will be able to! I’m looking forward to that.
