First time bike riders

Cathy Benvenuti of Franklin said her grandsons, who live in Reston, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., had never ridden bikes before, but they picked up on it real quick as they toured around Riverfront Park in Franklin around noon Wednesday. Omari Snell, 7, is in the foreground as he rides ahead of his brother, Damian, 9. As the boys were getting ready to race down a hill, Damian asked if Omari was ready and Omari responded “I was born ready for this”, and off he went. Benvenuti said the boys were so into their riding they forgot it was lunchtime. (By Richard Sayer)
