Bailey loves to ride his bike. When he is riding his bike, he can pretend to be anything he imagines. Sometimes when he is riding his bike he pretends that he is a race car driver or a safari hunter driving a jeep to find lions. Sometimes he is a circus performer on a high wire, a truck driver driving across the country, or a cowboy on a horse. Other times, Bailey pretends that he is a pilot, a taxi driver, or a pirate searching for treasures in the sea. Even when he is just Bailey riding his bike, he is having a great time.
