One family shares this experience:

Our child has Down syndrome, with corresponding low muscle tone.  We never thought it would be possible for him to ride a bike. 

Amy got him started on an adapted bike.   It gave him confidence and got him outdoors.  Also, it was good exercise and fun! 

Now he is able to ride a regular bike.
