It was a great success, judging by the numbers of fellow cyclists and bikes in the bike rack at Ordway! S. bit the dust going around the roundabout, but the drivers were wary and watchful and several people called out to ask if she was okay.
She was, tough kid! K. has developed a lot of stamina; she pedaled almost all the way up High School Road without stopping. And A. did great on the trail-a-bike, despite being fearful at first. It’s a big shift for him to go from the completely passive bike trailer to the tandem, where he has to hang on, pedal, and do his bit to keep balanced.
Later in the day, A. and I walked back to help with Ordway Gives Back day. Bright, sunny, and hot! Tonight, surveying the damage, we range from sun-kissed to downright sun-scorched. Time to keep the sunblock handy.
