Owen developed Cerebral Palsy. Today, Owen spends a lot of his time in his wheelchair and walks with a walker. Cerebral Palsy has made life more challenging for Owen but it hasn’t held him back.
Owen LOVES to ride his bike but, as kids do, he has outgrown his adaptive trike and needs a new ride. Bike riding gives Owen the ability to get outside and have fun but it does so much more for him. It works muscles and builds core strength, so therapy seems less like “work”. Bike riding allows Owen to work on coordination. It builds confidence and independence. Riding a bike gives him the chance to interact with other kids in the neighborhood, building his social skills. The most important thing to Owen, riding a bike lets him just be a kid.
