-Ned's New Bike
-The only thing Ned wanted
-on his birthday was a bike.
-He wanted a blue bike with a red
-seat and flames painted on the bar.
-On his fifth birthday,
-that's precisely what he had.
-It was a great bike.
-He had a bell on the handlebars...
-..and a bag under the seat
-for his sandwiches.
-Two large wheels
-and two small wheels...
-..to give Ned some help on his way.
-Ned rode his bike every day.
-Around the garden,
-down the street with Dad...
-..in the empty car park
-on Sundays with Tad-cu.
-Sometimes, he rode it in the house,
-from the front door to the kitchen.
-But Mam wasn't too happy
-when he did that.
-Nor was Shibwns the cat...
-..especially when Ned
-rode his bike over her tail.
-The blue bike
-was Ned's favourite thing.
-He looked after it so well and
-stored it in the shed every night.
-One clear Sunday morning,
-as the autumn turned to winter...
-..Ned's father woke one morning
-.."Ned, come and have
-"Today is an important day.
-Let's get started."
-"An important day?
-What was Dad talking about?"
-Ned jumped out of bed...
-and ate his porridge and toast.
-Dad shouted, "Today, Ned,
-we're going to the park."
-"Wear your trainers, jeans,
-blue T-shirt, red jacket...
-"..knee pads, elbow pads
-and more importantly, your helmet.
-"Oh, and your pants and socks,
-"Why, Dad?" asked Ned.
-He had no idea what was going on.
-"Ned," replied Dad, "Today is
-the day we remove the stabilizers.
-"From now on,
-you'll be cycling on two wheels."
-Ned swallowed hard.
-He enjoyed cycling everywhere
-on his bike...
-..but he felt safe
-with the stabilizers on the bike.
-But the two big wheels
-without the stabilizers?
-What if he started wobbling?
-What if he fell off?
-What if he hurt himself?
-what if he scratched his bike?
-On the other hand, he couldn't
-keep his stabilizers forever.
-He'd have to take them off
-sooner or later.
-But did he have to do it today?
-The park looked wonderful.
-The leaves on the tall trees...
-..were changing from green
-to red, orange and brown.
-The long, wide path stretched
-through the park...
-..past the picnic benches,
-swings, slide and the duck pond.
-"Now then, Ned," said Dad,
-as he removed the stabilizers...
-.."Are you ready?"
-"I don't think I am, Dad,"
-replied Ned nervously.
-"I'm worried I'll fall.
-I'm scared I'll scratch my bike."
-"There's no need to worry," said Dad
-as he cuddled Ned reassuringly...
-.."I'll make sure
-you don't fall off.
-"I promise, once you feel safe
-you'll be fine.
-"And you know,
-it's a wonderful feeling.
-"You'll never forget how to do it.
-"It's just like, well,
-riding a bike."
-Dad laughed at his own joke...
-..but Ned didn't understand it.
-"Come on, Ned. Let's get started."
-Ned looked at Dad nervously.
-"Come on, Ned,
-I promise to hold on tight.
-"I'm with you every step of the way.
-Ned sat on his red seat
-and held on tight to the handles.
-"Right," said Dad,
-"Feet on the pedals. Ready?"
-Slowly, Dad pushed the bike
-while holding on tight.
-Ned pedalled with his feet.
-He was a little shaky
-but then he felt more sure.
-"You're doing great," said Dad.
-Ned felt good.
-That's when he realised that Dad
-wasn't holding on any more.
-Ned was cycling on two wheels.
-On his own.
-Dad was right,
-it was an incredible feeling.
-The wheels turned faster and faster.
-He flew past the picnic tables, the
-swing, the slide and the duck pond.
-He was in a beautiful tunnel
-of golden leaves.
-The birds were singing a happy song.
-# Look, look, look at this
-# Ned is cycling on two wheels #
-Every flower waved
-as he passed them.
-Ned was sure he'd heard them say,
-"Look at how clever Ned is.
-"He's cycling on two wheels."
-Just then he saw a rabbit
-on the side of the path...
-..with its head in its paws.
-Ned slowed down
-and asked the rabbit...
-.."What's wrong, little bunny?
-Are you crying?"
-"I'm scared," replied the rabbit.
-"I'm lost. I don't know where
-Mama Bunny and my brothers went.
-"I thought they went that way...
-"..but I stopped to see my friend
-and Mama didn't notice.
-"Now she's gone."
-"Why don't you hop on my bike?"
-"Let's see if we can catch up
-with Mama Bunny.
-Ned placed the rabbit
-in his bag and started to pedal.
-"Hold on tight."
-"Thank you, bike boy,"
-said the rabbit through its tears.
-Of they went with Ned pedalling
-past the trees.
-All the creatures shouted...
-.."Mama Bunny? Mama Bunny?"
-"Has Baba Bunny lost its mother?"
-asked a squirrel.
-"Yes, and he's very sad,"
-"I'll help you find her, bike boy.
-"You're bound to catch up
-with her with your speedy wheels."
-The squirrel told the owl that the
-little rabbit had lost its mother.
-"Ooh, Baba Bunny has lost Mama,"
-The birds heard
-and they flew from their branches...
-..and settled on the handlebars.
-"Your wheels are bound
-to catch up with her," they said.
-"Mama Bunny?" they all shouted.
-"Has Baba Bunny lost its mother?"
-squeaked a family of butterflies...
-..as they settled on Ned's bell.
-"Yes, and it's very sad," said
-a buzzard that landed on Ned's head.
-That's when they saw another rabbit.
-A bigger rabbit
-at the side of the path.
-"Hold on," he told his new friends.
-"Hello. Are you Mama Bunny?"
-"Yes," cried the rabbit,
-"Have you seen my little baby?"
-"Well, as it happens,
-I think I have," replied Ned.
-As he said that, the little rabbit
-popped its head out of the bag.
-It leapt out, ran to Mama Bunny
-..and rubbed noses with her.
-"Thank you, bike boy,"
-said the happy rabbits.
-and your speedy wheels...
-"..we'd have never
-seen each other again."
-The owl hooted, "Oooh, hip-hip,
-hooray to our hero, the bike boy!"
-"Hip-hip, hooray," shouted everyone
-before disappearing into the woods.
-"What a great adventure on my first
-day on two wheels," thought Ned...
-..as he followed the path
-back to Dad.
-Dad was right.
-Riding a bike on two wheels,
-without the stabilizers...
-..was a special experience.
-Did that all happen?
-Well, it felt like that to Ned.
