I thought about writing today about how awesome my rides were this weekend - a 25 mi ride averaging 17+ mph (which is fast for me) and a 39 mile ride w/ lots of hills and fighting the wind. But, something better happened yesterday.
On Saturday, I was talking w/ my 21 y.o. step-son about going for a bike ride. He is interested in biking to add some aerobic work to his routine. He's going to be using my old Schwinn. We decided to do a ride Sunday morning. My 9 y.o. daughter wanted to join us. Sunday morning started with coffee, the paper, and the previous day's stage of the Tour of California. As others woke up, we made breakfast (waffles, from scratch) and started getting ready.
At 10:00 the three of us headed out to the garage to get the bikes ready and head out. I was on DB, my commuter bike, Olivia was on the trailer bike attached to DB, and Ryan on the Schwinn. We had a great ride! It wasn't the fastest, but we had fun. We went about 5-3/4 miles in town. I was real happy that Olivia wanted to go along.
She enjoys riding with me and likes it when I pick her from school using the bike too.
After we returned home, I switched bikes to my road bike and Ryan I took off again. We rode together for about 4 miles before he pealed off to head home. I'm glad he rode, too. He seemed to like it. So, maybe there are a couple more people in the family who are Loving The Bike.
