Milwaukee Boy Rides Adaptive Bicycles with Mason Crosby at Packers Bike Ride

At Wednesday’s annual Packers bike ride to training camp kicker Mason Crosby was pedaling alongside a boy from Milwaukee named George Highshaw.

George has spina bifida, but that wasn't going to stop him from taking part in the Packers ride.

George and Crosby rode in on special adaptive bikes which George then got to keep.

The bicycle you peddle with your arms instead of legs.

“I taught him how to ride it,” said George.

The family stayed in Green Bay the night before the surprise.

His father said America Family Insurance worked with the Packers to bring them up.

“George has an adapter bike, and they thought it would be cool to have an adapter bike for the first time,” said George’s father.

His father said being a life-long Packer fan it was a dream come true.

“I was so happy for him and proud for him,” said George’s father.

George’s father said that he wants people to know that his son does not have disabilities he is just different and needs people to be patient. 

When asked if he had fun, George responded, "It was very very much fun."
