Good-Bye Training Wheels!

Posted on

He did it! In 5 days’ time, Mike learned to ride a 2 wheeler.  Not only that, he came home with a certificate, a gold medal and a new Schwinn bike!  Quite a week for Mike!

I really have to hand it to the wonderful folks at Lose The Training Wheels for giving Mike the encouragement and tools he needed to have a successful week.  Also to his brother Nick, who served as his ‘spotter’ running alongside him as he rode his bike.

I wrote about Lose The Training Wheels last week when Mike started his camp.  To top  off the week by winning a bike was just the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae. He was so proud of his accomplishment, which only mirrored our pride in him.  My worries about Mike not doing well with a 26″ bike were unwarranted; now it will go to Nick as sort of a ‘thank you’ gift.  I can’t wait for the next beautiful day to hit the road with the family.  Thank you Lose The Training Wheels!

    This is wonderful! My son is 16 and still can’t ride a two-wheeler. I don’t know that he ever will, so seeing stories like this always makes me happy 🙂
