We found a two-wheel bike for Toren on Craig’s List for $10 (plus helmet). It has training wheels. Toren took to it like it was old news. I have some video of him riding the bike the first time that I’ll post soon.
I had to get a new bike rack for my car since my old one doesn’t work on the new Prius. With that in place, I took him out for his first big ride on Sunday on the Upper Tampa Bay Trail. Here’s our route:
I was actually impressed with how well he did. We rode about 3.2 miles over about 1 1/2 hours. He did stop to pick flowers three or four times, and on the way back I had to coax him to continue by promising him an ice cream cone at McDonald’s, but he did pretty good.
(Hat tip to Scott Husband for recommending the trail. It’s a beautiful trail, wide, and well-maintained.)
