Roger's Ride for Freedom!

Roger's Ride for Freedom

Ride for Freedom!
Roger's desire for independence has motivated him to learn the safety rules for riding his bike to work daily, providing his own transportation. The pride in his smile of accomplishment is inspirational. As his skills improved, he has moved up to a larger bike. He was motivated to learn the skill of operating the much larger size by going to the park and practicing at the beginning of the season. Roger continued riding the smaller bike to work until he felt confident with the larger bike. Then, after a month of constant practice, the proud day for him arrived! He was able to arrive riding his wheels of freedom and pride, and show his peers and community supports staff the independence of providing his own transportation.
