When and how did you get into bike riding?

I started when I was about 1, When I got big I got my pink Reid bike. I tried to ride it without my training wheels but I started to wobble and then saved myself on my foot, so I have to have my training wheels on to keep practicing.

How did you get your hands on a Reid?

I got it for my number 4 Birthday because I was getting so big, I was soo lucky Mum, Dad and my little sister Cove saved up and bought it for me.

Which Reid bike do you ride?

I got a pink one and it’s very big and has a dinging bell that sings very well (girls classics 16″ vintage)

Girls Classic

How has it treated you?

Yes I love my bike so much because when I go on Rides with my Mum I can put toys in the basket on the front and I put cool beads on my wheels.

What have you done and where have you been with it?

The best place I have got to Ride my bike is on Rottnest island and I also have taken it right around Australia so lots of amazing places like the Ningaloo Reef.

Do you have any other future adventures planned?

We are going to do lots more of Australia and keep taking my bike hopefully I can take it to Alice Springs next time and ride on the red dirt.

Finally, what advice would you give to those who are considering getting into bike riding or perhaps have never tried it before?

So if you don’t have training wheels like me I will help you ride it and if you wobble and fall off I’ll run and run and save you, and it’s ok if you want you training wheels back on until your ready.
