We’ve tried Nathan on bikes before. He liked the one he rode at a friend’s house, but he didn’t like the one I found at Goodwill, even though it seemed about the right size. Lately he’s expressed more than a casual interest, so we bit the bullet and got an actual, brand-new bike for him.
He’s so ready. We’ve been going for rides together — granted, at this point that involves me being in my lowest gear and trying hard not to tip over from lack of momentum, but it’s cool even so. Eventually we’ll be doing more serious rides together, ones where Ryan can’t keep up with us by trotting alongside.
