We've tried lots of different bikes/trikes.
Theresa asked us to bring the upright bike we borrowed--the frame is a little small for Elena. That last time we tried this bike, E had a hard time steering while concentrating on her foot movement. She also got easily frustrated when she would accidentally brake (wheels going backwards) when she was trying to pedal.
Today, she got it! Pretty smooth steering around the therapy center, and just a little accidental braking!
The video is shaky b/c I was running around the center opening doors so E could bike in one big circle. She never ran into any walls, and only hit the handlebar on a door opening once. She knows how to use the brake, but sometimes forgets. (I meant to bring a helmet, but today I forgot). E was really proud of herself! She said her legs "felt like jelly" afterwards.
She'll hopefully go on the bike tomorrow in the neighborhood! (There is one flat cul-de-sac, she'll try that!).
