Bike Ride

It was a beautiful January day here in Texas, so we decided to let the boys ride their bikes. Benjamin got a bike for Christmas and other than pushing it around the house, he hasn't had an opportunity to really ride it. He was excited to take his bike out into the world but he confessed to me that he was worried it was going to get dirty (he is very protected of his stuff). Caleb has a wonderful hand cycle that he got through Athletes Helping Athletes, he's had for about a year and a half. Now that Benjamin has a bike, today was the first time the boys rode their bikes together.

Safety first folks, gotta get those helmets on. 

Benjamin was so cute, he kept his eyes on his feet almost the entire time. He was really working hard to figure out those pedals.

Caleb WAY ahead of us. That hand cycle is crazy fast.

Considering it was his first time, Benjamin did pretty good. He was able to pedal on his own (slowly and only going straight). He'll be going as fast as his bubba in no time.

Caleb's a pro on his bike.

Benjamin picked out his helmet.

We are so thankful for this cycle. This would normally cost about $2500, so we are beyond grateful to Athletes Helping Athletes for providing one for Caleb. It is a wonderful thing to be able to ride a bike.


He had so much fun!
