Getting around town using our own power is part of our curriculum here at the schoolhouse. So, last Sunday we met up at Mueller Park to get some riding practice. We started out by decorating our bikes with wheel cards and colored straws to put on our spokes. Then, we headed out for bike adventures. Bike adventures are where one person picks a destination in the park and we all ride there together. While we are all at different comfort levels on a bike, we stuck together and didn't let anyone get too far behind or ahead. Everyone was super encouraging and felt a little more experienced when the day was over. With more practice, we hope to make a field trip somewhere close, where we can bike and truly get a feel of all the beauty around us that we might have missed before.
