For neighborhood children, the rules followed the roads: I could ride my three-geared red boys’ bike in the safety of our development, up and down driveways, in figure eights and infinite circles around the cul-de-sac. I could leave the residential neighborhood only to visit a single deli—provided I wore a helmet and rode alongside my dad. There, unbuckled helmet slipping ...
