Tandem Bike Riding Continued......

So, Memorial Day weekend was another couple of successful bike rides!!!

Saturday, we rode around the neighborhood before lunch.  It was so warm.  Amanda had a blast.  She did lots of pedaling with Daddy.

Monday, we went to the Blackstone River Bike Path.  We rode 5 miles.  2.5 each way.  Amanda was nervous at first because she did not recognize the area.  But soon as we pedaled over the river and along the waterway, I could hear "WHEEEEE" and "Daddy, go FASTER!!!!!"

She was so happy.  It was great.  This was what we wanted to do as a family.  Amanda's autism and sensory delays threatened to not allow us to do this.  But the WeeRide Pro-Pilot allowed us to be able to do this.

So if you have a child with Autism or any other disability that interfers with them being able to ride a bike with you, please consider this.  It has added to our family.  Amanda is enjoying bike riding.  Looks forward to getting on the bike.  And wants to go faster!!!!!

I have already ordered the secondary hitch for my bike to make for easy changes and a new seat post that I can attach it to easily without crushing the suspension.  Hopefully, she will adjust  to me on the front!!!
