WOONSOCKET â€“ When Suze Kirwanâ€™s family hit a rough patch a few years ago, her boys found a smooth way out on skateboards and trick-bikes.
Theyâ€™re still riding, with the hearty encouragement of their mother, who sees the small-wheel world of sports as a safe haven from the pitfalls of youth.
â€śWhen I realized how important each sport was to my boys, thatâ€™s how it happened,â€ť says Kirwan. â€śBeing able to get on a skateboard or a BMX bicycle and just go, it really helped them.â€ť
