Set a newborn on a couch cushion, kitchen table, or pull-out bed and it just lies around making spit bubbles.
And sure, baby grows older, starts crawling, starts bashing into walls, but it isn’t until she begins riding a bike that everything really opens up. Yes, this is when it first becomes clear that: We taught them to control a machine!
Seeing little kids on bikes is watching them realize how far the world really goes. Pedaling around the block, racing to the store, everything seems closer together, and every day they want a little more. Soon they’ll be driving cars and flying planes to stars and zipping down highways, across oceans, and into brave new worlds.
When you see little kids on bikes make sure you smile and nod at these brave explorers.
Because today it’s the neighborhood.
And tomorrow it’s the world.
