When I think about my mother 

I don’t necessarily think about bikes.

But I think about beach days and

learning to fly kites.

I think about how hard she worked 

to raise a family in the States

and how she managed to get all six of us

on the ice in our hockey skates.

She instilled in us all a work ethic 

that is strong and unrelenting.

I admire her strength, and the love she gives 

seems to be never ending. 

She has taught me how to live a life

full of love, joy, and hard work

and that I must be sure to keep my balance

as I continue to pedal forward.   – Dani Racioppi
