Bike Repairs

Margot's bike had a flat tire for a few weeks. This past weekend, Brodie showed her how to repair it and do a tune-up.

The weather has been fantastic this week in DC - cool morning (high 50s) and warm afternoons (high 70s). On Monday, when I picked her up from school, I pushed her bike the 1.2 miles to school and jogged next to her as she rode home. She's still kind of nervous on her bike, but I think these forced rides will help build her confidence.

The bonus is that it's uphill all the way to school, and downhill all the way home.

Does she have 2 wheels or 3?

Four, actually. But the training wheels were off during the repairs. :)
