Riding a bike is one of the first tastes of freedom a kid can have. There’s something about the adult running alongside the child as they learn to get their balance and work the pedals… and then the inevitable letting go as they send them off down the street, and ultimately, out into the world. The child hears them yell, “Look straight ahead! Pedal faster! You can do it!” And then, after not much time, they are no longer wobbling down the street, and the voice of their parent becomes fainter and fainter. Some parents get a little weepy during these moments of launching their children. But for the kids, feeling the wind in their faces and the world flying by, it’s a discovery of fun and freedom that makes them smile with joy and new-found self-confidence. To you and me, this may look like just a few bikes parked alongside a house. But to the choir kids, these bikes are a little bit of heaven on earth! For our choir kids, the experience of learning to ride a bike and the adventure that it brings is no less thrilling. Recently, we sat down with the kids and asked them to share their experience of learning to ride a bike and what their dream bike would look like. Their answers made us smile – we think you’ll enjoy them too!
