The birth of a bike.

There are no more kids bikes or trikes in the house. Santa dropped this off in a box and
we then had the fun of assembling it. Doing that has given it’s owner a wonderful insight
into how the mechanics of various parts of the bike work and ideally she will be able to
do a lot of the care and maintenance of it herself as she grows.

I got a big bike when I was her age and it mean freedom, I travelled for miles and miles
and so many trips to the local library I could not possibly count. There are a lot more
cars on the roads these days, so how far we shall let her cycle is something else to ponder
but I will be continuing the family tradition of making her learn the rules of the road
before she is allowed cycle outside of the estate.
