Karen Kefauver, Spin City: Plenty of local programs to get kids hooked on bikes and bike safety

Published Friday February 3

I can only imagine what a mountain bike rock star I might be now if I had started trail riding when I was in 7th grade. I was lucky to have a bike and sometimes rode to school. But back then, as a 12-year-old, I thought less about bikes and more about what I was going to have for my evening snack and how a lot of notes I passed back and forth with friends during class. (Remember marvelous old-fashioned pen-and-paper notes instead of text messaging?)

But not every child has access to a bike.

“Tawn’s a really great guy. He got us into mountain biking,” Lockwood said. “I made friends with children who I didn’t really know before.”
