On Yer Bike! 

Oliver has been asking for a bike for a little while, long enough for us to know he was serious about wanting one. He has been riding a bike at school during breaks and at lunch and has developed the desire to further pursue the new skills that he had acquired.

So recently we went to the bike shop and let Oliver choose a bike that both he liked and we thought suitable for him as a first bike.

Well to say it has been a success is an understatement. He loves it and he loves riding his bike. The bike he chose was a Police themed bike and he loves it.

I wrote last week about how I’m really not a fan of sport or exercise, however the one thing I have always enjoyed is Cycling. I haven’t really kept it up as an adult however as a kid I rode practically everywhere. Summer holidays were spent riding to local parks and woods and spending the day out on bikes with my brother and friends. Since Oliver has gotten his bike we have already been out multiple times and both Oliver and Leo have enjoyed the rides in the countryside around our village, Leo has use of Olivers old trike, which has a handle for myself or Keighley to push him along.

I am looking forward to the future when the boys are that little bit older and the whole family can go on a long cycle ride for the day. This wont be for a few years yet but in the mean time we have to concentrate on getting Oliver less dependant on his stabilisers and riding on two wheels rather then four. I am looking forward to how Oliver and Leos riding skills develop over the next few years.
