WOONSOCKET – When Suze Kirwan’s family hit a rough patch a few years ago, her boys found a smooth way out on skateboards and trick-bikes.

They’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.

“When I realized how important each sport was to my boys, that’s how it happened,” says Kirwan. “Being able to get on a skateboard or a BMX bicycle and just go, it really helped them.”
