Rebecca’s Story – A Bike to Support Transportation With Cerebral Palsy
The common expression, “It’s so easy, just like riding a bike!” I’ve never gotten it. I feel like people take the simplicity of riding a bike for granted. For someone like myself, it’s not so easy.
I’m Rebekah. I’m an actor, writer, artist, and musician – I also have cerebral palsy. I never learned to ride a bike due to balance issues. I’ve been on a constant growth journey- trying to love myself and where I am at. In this act of self-acceptance, I found Good Karma bikes. I don’t have a car and walking is hard for me. I carry a cane and there is never a guarantee for a seat on the bus. At Good Karma Bikes, I found an adult trike that spoke to my heart. A brown seat and shiny blue paint. I put the bike on layaway and planned to pick it up once it was paid it off. About a week later, I received a call from Jenny at Good Karma Bikes.
