Riding your bike on the side of a mountain appears to be a bit of an art form.
Yesterday we built the kids bikes, and they've been practicing on the driveway.
Today Scott made his first attempt at riding to school. He made it there. He almost didn't make it home. The fact that the trip is almost entirely downhill on the way to school means that it is almost entirely uphill on the way home!
So now (once Scott is suitably hydrated and rested) we're off to see if we can pick up a bike rack for our car. If he can make his way to school in the morning, I can pick him up at the end of the day.
