How awesome is that? The bike they used to teach her was the Electra Townie -- a bicycle so easy to ride, it's even patented.
Had a great experience at work today teaching someone to ride a bike who had never ridden before. Took the pedals off a bike, had her coast down a grassy slope repeatedly to figure out balancing, put the pedals back on and voila! She is now pedaling happily and deciding which bike she likes best.
What's the big deal? Well, she was 52 years old!
