The long grass

Trying to continue her great cycling learning, Caitlin made it round the 1.5 miles of Kenley’s Aerodrome yesterday morning.

We stopped and reset as required. Here she is on the last bit; tired but still enjoying the freedom and independence cycling can bring.

Keep going, Twinkle! – very proud mum and dad x

High Roller.

This stunning Sunday saw Kt levelling up big time. She bravely worked with Mr Jonathan Spearman Oxx, a highly recommended and patient cycling coach.

Initially Jonathan worked with us to optimise the bike set up, a major challenge in itself as the usual rules don’t apply.

Within the hour he had her starting off, stopping relatively safely and cycling/balancing like this. Quite an achievement. Very well done to Kt for sticking at it! It was exhausting for both of them but a very rewarding outcome.

Ready for another session in two weeks.

Still working with S&C Coach Gareth Shelbourne. This represents a milestone in both Kt’s recovery from ongoing knee injuries and adapting to changes brought by simply growing.

Growth spurts present major hurdles for any CP child. It’s helpful to have a quality, resourceful coach to assist – cheers Gareth.

Perhaps yesterday’s hour at the local trampoline park helped a bit too. 🤔
