I am something of a fraud as a cycling father. My daughter is nine years old and hadn’t learned to ride a bike yet. This Spring I was determined to teach her and unlike previous years everything clicked for her. She spent only a couple of days scooting without pedals before I felt she was ready. I put the pedals back on and away she went! After a few minutes of cruising up and down the sidewalk she said “Dad, when I get good at this I’m going to be a bike geek like you and ride all year round.” Ahhhh, that makes a bike geek Dad happy indeed.
