We took the bikes out to Holly Beach on Sunday.
It’s not a huge area, we pretty much explored all there was to explore in the 2 hours we buzzed around. (We only put about 18 miles on the bikes, lol.) But it was great for allowing me open space to learn to shift for the first time. And I did!
I felt pretty comfortable shifting up and down between 1st and 4th gears. I still have lots to learn but I’m sure it will all come with time and practice.
We got lucky and timed our trip just right. We headed out when the skies cleared around Noon and just as we were loading up to leave it was starting to rain again. It was fun to get out and play a little while we could.
Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.
