You’re Never Too Old to Learn
I am extremely proud to introduce our newest contributor at Loving the Bike. Kassidy is my 11 year old daughter and will be writing posts about once a month. She is a great little writer and I hope you (and your kids) enjoy what she has to offer. – Darryl
When I was four years old, my mom and dad bought me a bike. I got on and just rode! Just Kidding!
Actually, when I was four, I lived on the island of St. Kitts. I moved there when I was four and was seven when we left. St. Kitts had bad roads, so it wasn’t safe for kids to be on them on a bike. So I didn’t learn when we lived there.
When I was seven, we moved to Austin Texas. I tried to learn there, but never seemed to figure out how to do it. Then we went to Cambell River to see if we liked it enough to move there. When we were there, I borrowed a scooter from the neighbors so I had something to do. I think it helped me find my balance.
Then we moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. When I was nine, one of my friends came to play. She was riding her bike so my dad asked if I could borrow it. My dad made me get on and try to ride. Once I got on, I was riding! It was so easy.
So that means I was nine years old when I learned to ride a bike. Maybe older than some kids learn, but never too late to enjoy all the fun that can be had on a bike.
