Lotus learns to ride a bike

I have been trying to get my Lotus to learn the joy of cycling, but she was scared and resisted. It finally happened!

It has also helped our sanity to get outdoors, and cruise during this pandemic. She especially loves it when I follow her around in circles and tight turns through a large empty parking lot. “Now you get to see how I can do tight turns!”

The pedals kept hitting her in the calves when she was learning to coast so we made calf guards with tube socks and my china flat shoes shoved inside. It worked!

The Electra kids “rat rod” bike, beloved by all when they grow into it. It is very cozy.

Day three of practice she launched.
