If you do not know Jack, you may not get the coolness of this picture. Jack is visually impaired with light perception in one eye and he's legally blind in the other. He does not have depth perception. When he walks (actually he usually runs) we encourage him to use his long white cane to help him identify curbs, drop-offs, things in his path. He gets better with each use of the cane. BUT you can't use a cane when riding a bike. As usual his ever adaptive self, Jack has learned to look out for curbs and use the bike itself to measure the distance to the curb. AND he has become quite adept at using his little non-bending fine motor impaired fingers and hands to lift the bike up/down the curb independently. Hope you are enjoying this beautiful day as much as we are!
