Bicycle Lessons

April 19 is “Bicycle Day”! Here’s some learning resources for a fun and interesting study!

Still Learning Something New

On 26 June 1819, W. K. Clarkson, Jr. of New York was granted a patent for a new and improved velocipede (“bicycle” was not a word yet) .  This is the first bicycle made in the USA.

Because the kids like to watch stunts, we will some view some BMX tricks.
