Biking to School

Living on a hillside in Tennessee made it difficult to teach the kids how to ride their bikes. You can only learn so much in a driveway, and we never seemed to master the logistics to gather everyone, cross town to the flat bike path alongside Melton Lake, and lock in their bike skills.

Though our elevation in north Colorado Springs is close to 7,000' abovr sea level, our new neighborhood is flat. But I still haven't taken the time to take the kids out to fully teach them.

So Jarrett, being ever the self-starter, decided to teach himself! Like the old Bo Jackson Nike commercials, he "just did it".

And once again, I'm learning from him.
