Watch out Lance Armstrong!

As soon as Riley turned 4, he was determined to learn how to ride his bike with out training wheels. He so... wanted to keep up with his big brother and the training wheels seemed to be holding him back. So, we took the training wheels off several weeks ago and after about a week or two of practice (and many, many falls later)---he got it!

Rain or shine, Riley is ALWAYS begging to go out and ride. Every afternoon, when all the kids are out in the street, Riley coordinates the bike races.

He draws the starting line and a finish line with some side walk chalk. Then, all the kids line up and race to the end. Riley is getting super fast. (Makes this mama a little nervous though!)
He hasn't been able to beat his big brother yet, but it's only a matter of time.
Maybe we have the makings of the next Lance Armstrong!?!?
we'll have to wait and see---lol
