Peddling On My Own
Learning how to ride a bike for the first time was a nerve racking independent moment. I was about five years old when my sister informed me that I was too old to still be riding a bike with training wheels. That was the time I decided not to depend on them anymore. Even though I had some doubt, my sister and I went outside and started to take the little wheels off my bike. After my bike went through the transformation, I was now ready for the big moment. With butterflies in my stomach, I slowly got on the bike, and with my shaky hands, I gripped the handles tightly. Meanwhile my sister was holding on to me to help keep my balance. I was so afraid the she would let go, yet I was determined to ride this bike on my own. Next with a little push from her, I started to peddle. The faster my bike went the faster my heart raced. Finally I looked back nervously and noticed that my sister let go of my bike a long time ago. I was so excited that I accomplished freedom on my bike that I forgot to peddle. The next step I remember, I was lying on the ground, yet I did not care because of the adrenaline rush. I will never forget the exhilarating moment and growing up stage of riding a bike without training wheels.
In one paragraph how does the paragraph you read use description to paint the picture of the world of the story (motif)?
The paragraph’s motif is overcoming difficulties in achieving whatever one wanted to achieve. The boy with the help of his sister, was able to accomplish his dream of riding a bike without anyone’s help or without the training wheels. The supporting sister is also an important element in the motif because with proper help people can achieve anything. OF course it’s the sister who sows the seed for change by saying that the boy was too old to ride a bike with the training wheels. He took this as a challenge and although he fell down at the end of the story, he was very happy that he rode the bike for a little distance without anyone’s help. Fear of falling never stopped him.
