My Special Hand – Episode 17 – Bike Riding

It’s been all too long since our last video episode! We’re still here though and still doing things our own special way. This month as it started warming up outside we had one goal in mind, RIDE OUR BIKE WITHOUT TRAINING WHEELS! It’s been a long time goal filled with successes and failures. Sam made the leap into being a bike rider a few weeks ago and he hasn’t looked back. He’s even had a few wipeouts that hurt really bad but he still has great love for riding his bike. Check out our little video episode we put together showing off his biking skills.

As the video shows we’ve only made one minor modification to his bike and that was after a discussion with our super friendly local bicycle shop, A1 Cyclery in Indianapolis. Kevin from the shop suggested a “wing” type handlebar grip to extend the handlebar grip area and provide more surface for Sam to put his little hand on. So far it seems to be working great.

What kind of modifications have you tried out on your bike?
