jerry learns to ride

Boy on Bike

I can ride
I can ride
I can ride …

He shouts like every kid who ever learned to ride
Then hits a tree [not pictured].

Hiring a bicycle for Jerry to learn to ride in the gardens of the Molo Mansion, Iloilo City. Jerry could swim before he was 2 and his sister tell me he taught himself. But riding a bike has eluded him until now, age 11. Did you learn without training wheels?
