Steve, Cathy, and Nicholas -- Nick rides the gravity bike (created 2011-12-10)

One of the exhibits at Science City that Nicholas has never been able to ride before is Newton' gravity bike. It requires that the rider be at least 53 inches tall. The gravity bike runs along a wire suspended high in the air. It has very heavy weights attached ten feet below it that makes the bike perfectly stable across the high wire. Last Sunday, Nick measured himself and he had just barely reached the 53 inch limit. So off he went on the gravity bike. Here's a picture.
