Oldest and Quickest

AnikaToday was a chance to teach my oldest student (so far) to ride.  Anika is 13 and just needed a wee bit of confidence to roll on her brand new bike.  I was so happy she had a head start before visiting–I was a little worried about running back and forth on beat up legs with blistered feet from Ironman Texas last Saturday.  But, lucky me, Anika was rolling right away.  Our focus changed immediately to the finer points–turning, staying balanced and straight, starting/coasting/stopping.  I still ran with her in the beginning, but she was confident of her new skills in no time and cycling like a pro.
