Summer Smith, a 10-year-old Cambria native, is getting around recreationally more easily, safely and enjoyably with her family these days, thanks to her new mode of transportation provided in part by the Jack’s Helping Hand nonprofit and LoneStar eBikes in Salado, Texas.

This Cambria 10-year-old can now ride a bike — thanks to donation from local nonprofit

Summer Smith, a 10-year-old Cambria native, is getting around recreationally more easily, safely and enjoyably with her family these days, thanks to her new mode of transportation provided in part by the Jack’s Helping Hand nonprofit and LoneStar eBikes in Salado, Texas.

Summer has cerebral palsy, but her parents, Cambria native Justin Smith and Suriya Breen Smith, say their daughter loves to ride with her bicycle-enthusiast family.

It’s in her DNA: Summer’s father is an avid mountain biker and co-founder of the Cambria Bike Kitchen, which provides maintenance and bike repairs, gear and children’s programs, and the Cambria Trails Alliance (which maintains local trails so everyone can access them, whether they’re on a bike, a horse or a wheelchair).

For years, the Smith family (Justin, Suraya, Summer, her twin sister Jade and 5-year-old brother Ivan) continued to cycle together regularly. Because of Summer’s condition, she rode in a standard “co-pilot” style bicycle. But now that Summer’s grown taller, that option isn’t safe anymore.
