FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — A young Frankfort boy with cerebral palsy has finished in second place in a national contest to win a special bike.

5-year-old Gideon Robinson entered The Great Bike Giveaway for the chance to win a $7,000 tandem bicycle.

He did not receive enough votes to win the bike, but he did raise enough money to buy his own!

His mom, Abby, says the bike will help him be more independent, and he’ll be able to use it as he grows up.
