"The Theba Thing" is about stepping out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and trying the things that have been on my mind and heart.
In the fall of 2011, I was bitten by the bike-riding bug. I went biking at Two Rivers Park with my brother and his family visiting from Fayetteville. I knew I was going to “have to” go, because they’re big into outdoor activities. So I rode one of their extra bikes and I absolutely had the time of my life.
I had no idea these wonderful scenic trails existed so close to where I lived. I sure have been living in a comfortable bubble, which usually means to me, where there are no bugs, no potential for bumps and scratches and plenty of air conditioning.
Nevertheless, I was hooked. I started planning how both my mother and I could enjoy bike riding together, and get my friends in on the action as well. But first I had to convince mom that she would enjoy it as much as I did.
