The bike provides a different way to see the world — and just maybe it shows us there’s a different world to see. For the Reber family of Salt Lake City, being outdoors, whether on a bike seat, cruising on a skateboard, or meandering without a watch, is fundamental to how they —and their two young boys — want to take it all in.
And there’s a lot. The world is a busy place for adults and kids alike. Often we’re so preoccupied with getting to the next thing — work, school, sports practice, the gym, even the weekend — that we don’t feel like we can stop to appreciate much of anything along the way.
The outdoors provides an immediate pause. And the Rebers try to put on the brakes once each day, rain or shine, each in their own way. Bike rides, trail runs, and gentle walks through the park are routines that make all the difference for this unassuming family.
