Adam on wheels

I could not let one more minute go by without sharing the good news: Adam now has a bike!!

The charity Cyclists Fighting Cancer have graciously given Adam a specialised trailer bike, complete with harness so that he doesn't run away (or fall out when Mom accidentally hits a dip and spills him over! More on that later--he was ok, by the way!)

It's amazing, and yet another part of the silver lining around the clouds that have hovered the last few months. Adam was thrilled, clapping all the way home as cars dashed around us and mom rode slowly along, terrified! I can't believe we can all actually ride together now--will take a bit more work before this learner is used to the weight distribution of the trailer, but the look on Adam's face last night was and will be worth it all.

Pics to come when we ride again--in daylight this time!!

p.s. For those of you who have asked what you can do to help and are still hoping for a chance, here is one option: you can always donate to those charities that have helped us, and CFC is one of them. The bike they donated is easily worth £500. AND you can also keep kicking my butt to fundraise for them one day, when time and energy and treatment regimes permit. You choose :)

This is great news Steph! I can picture his cute face clapping as you rode. Can't wait to see pictures. Love you all. :)
