Lose the Training Wheels

 The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas is hosting the first annual “Lose the Training Wheels” bike camp event for kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities at the Crockett Center in north Austin. The event is to provide a safe place for instruction on balance, pedal, steer and take off for bike riding. Emma Relyea, 9, rejoices with a fist pump after riding with no help this morning on only her fourth day of camp. “It is such a great camp. Emma loves it. She was riding with the wind.” said Emma’s mother Mariam Relyea.
