National Biking Month should not be just one month. Rather it should be all year. Biking is many things–transport, recreation, exercise, sport. Did you know that since bicycles were invented in the 1900’s that there are more than 1 billion of them worldwide today?
I remember the unadulterated joy of playing on my tricycle. I also remember the terror of learning to ride my first full size two-wheeler WITHOUT training wheels. Back in those simpler times, I never expected to find that kind of ride in rehab.
With that said, the family does things together stays together more often than not. I remember the fun my parents and I had reading, doing puzzles, and playing cards, puzzles and board games. Believe it or not, BE (meaning Before Electronics), archaeologists have shown board games were played 4,600 years ago in Mesopotamia.

Boy would I love one that inspires my family to spins yarns about the past, blurt out secrets of the present, and dreams of places beyond our imaginations!
