Today we introduced Abigail (and Megan, and I!) to the East Bay Bike Party! It was partly an introduction to biking, partially to biking and Burner culture. She loved it! She gave away a hundred glow sticks to a hundred smiling, gratitude-filled people! She told us how good it felt to give gifts :-).
Tomorrow we are going to a bicycling class and I believe she is now properly motivated! (Darn, in our neighborhood there isn’t a tremendous opportunity for an 8-year-old to go bicycling, so it’s taken a while to get her comfortable on a bike)
