Is it too soon for a Build-A-Bike #FlashbackFriday? Heather Q. shares what #BuildABikePgh meant to her daughter, Morgan: She was excited to go on the trip to help make her very own bike and she was VERY excited to show the family her bike when she got home. She started to get on the bike and push around not using the pedals and then glide down small hills. The first picture I sent you shows this. I wanted to let you know that as of today, she placed her feet on the pedals and now she riding all over the place by herself! When she first did it by herself, I commented on what a great job she was doing. She then commented that she had fun seeing the bike being made and getting a new big girl bike which she felt helped her. The second picture I send you shows her riding by herself. I wanted to thank you and everyone again for giving my child a wonderful experience and to let you know you really made a difference.
