We went back to Shoreline Park for another lesson. This time I told her just go out on the streets and come back every few minutes. Every few minutes Lori returned with a big smile on her face. She's ready. I watched her stops and take offs, very smooth. As soon as we can figure out a way to both go out and ride we will, but I'm also going to start looking for some other East Bay/Oakland female riders for her to ride with.
