The next Fausto Coppi

Let me introduce to you my brother in law. His name is Francesco Pascolini and he is in 5th grade. He is tall and lanky and has an appetite like a termite. WE will be moving out toward Sycamore and he is very excited. His dad, my father in law, works all the time and Francesco has a lot of down time. I will be introducing him into bikes this summer and hopefully he will find it interesting.
I am doing this in the hope to inspire some young person into riding. You see when we work at the shop we have the little kiddies coming in for their little bikes and then we have some teenagers that get the moutain bike to ride to the park and back. It is so difficult to get kids to ride bikes. Belgium has a scary good junior program and they pump new riders like there is no tomorrow. Niels Albert is their new star and he has already spanked Sven Nys.
So, when you are bored,take a kid our for a ride. Pump his tires, make'm wear a helmet and adjust the saddle,you know how to do that. Figure out the limit that the child can go so you don't discourage him or her. Do something to make cycling grow in this country. I am so tired of dealing with old weirdos that want to go fast.
