The Bike Whisperer Strikes Again!

On the same day Lance Armstrong faced his toughest challenge to date in the 2009 Tour  De France, the Bike Whisperer had his own uphill climb.  Today I was challenged with a (almost) third-grader who did not want to learn to ride a bike.Matthew

Although adept at using his scooter, he had skipped right past the joy of riding his bike on only two wheels. Today’s lesson required more psychology than mechanics.  His was comfortable right away at balance, he just needed to relax.  He has seen a few crashes in the Tour and needed to know that’s another world compared to his street and bike.

Within an hour, Matthew was riding the whole block, turning, stopping, and starting!  He didn’t think he could do it.  But that’s before he met The Bike Whisperer.

    Jeff, this is a great site and an encouragement to all kids who do not know how to ride—for whatever reason. Our family appreciates your work with Kids!
