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?

My Special Hand – Episode 16 – Snow Tubing at Perfect North

Long time no see friends! Winter has been especially cold and brutal where we live (and from the sound of for most of you as well), so we’ve been locked inside for most of the season.  However there have been a few not-so-terrible days sprinkled in.  On those days we’ve tried to get out and do some fun in the snow stuff.  One of those things included traveling to Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg Indiana to go snow tubing.  We made a couple of videos from us going down the hills, check it out.

What kind of adventures have you been up to this winter?

My Special Hand – Episode 13 – Zipping our coat

Happy one year anniversary to My Special Hand! We decided for such a big occasion we should tackle a video that has had a lot of requests. Zipping our coat! It’s a very fitting video for us as we started our site after watching a video from LivingOneHanded.com about how to zip your coat. We’ve become great friends with Ryan from LOH and I contacted him about using his video in ours. If you haven’t watched his videos please check them out: https://youtube.com/user/LivingOneHanded

This milestone wouldn’t have been possible without Ryan or you! Thank you Ryan for inspiring us and Thank YOU for watching! See you next time!
