Three-year-old Maya Suruki never bothered with training wheels. She touched foot to pedal for the first time Sunday, and pretty soon she was a full-fledged bicycle rider. She was among a few dozen children who attempted the two-wheeled rite of passage at Carrboro’s Open Streets festival, under the cheering guidance of cycling professionals and volunteers. Weaver Street was closed to automobiles and opened to a recreational variety that included rock climbing and taekwondo, with several events centered around small children on bikes.
