"Ride Bikes Outside?"

We should never forget the simple joy of riding bikes. Or of beating Dad in the "Tour de Neighborhood"

Interestingly, Alec was in no hurry to give up his training wheels. At the age of four he knew the names of many of the riders in the Tour de France. While watching that great race with his Mom, another avid fan, he witnessed a spectacular pileup. "That wouldn't have happened if they'd had training wheels." he declared.

One of the first almost complete sentences Alec spoke was "Ride bikes outside?"

What a cute kid. Is that a photo of the famous Tour de Shady Oaks featuring Tommy Juttan Kharo?
