Ned Parkin
Never Too Late!
As a huge smile crossed Nedís face while looking at a photo of himself having his first and only bike riding experience, ARK knew that they needed to grow the Lending Library to include a variety of bikes. Although Ned, age 45, had never ridden a bike before, he was able to trial a bike at ARKís Roll & Sole-A-Thon. When asked if he liked to go fast he replied, ďNo, I like going slow. I like going around on the bike.Ē Ned may be a man of few words but his picture says 1000 words. All of the equipment acquired for ARKís Lending Library is available to hundreds of people with disabilities in our community. Individuals like Ned can check out ARKís equipment for free until someone else makes a request. Letís help create equipment choices for individuals so that they do not have to wait until age 45 to experience what most of us take for granted... like riding a bike!
