Bike Path carnage
Sunday, nice weather. Bike path is not the place for serious cyclists. Yet what did we see when we took the kids out. Group of 6 French riders, with three Giant Carbons, One Specialized Carbon, and another Cannondale top of the line. Interesting contrast of them with the other little kids and other Huffys out there.
30 mins + of loading bikes on the rack and into the back, 20 mins of rounding up helmets, water bottles, food, etc. All for a 10 minute drive to the path and 30mins of riding.
Priceless. We upgraded the oldest bike and handed down his Trek Jet to the little one. Put the training wheels on it and rotated the bars back so he could reach better. Worked pretty well except when there was a hill. He'd come to a complete stop right before the hill starts. Then start to cry when he couldn't ride up it.
And he'd ride in the middle or the far left. Over and over
Lucas get over to the right.
Then he'd look back behind him and then ride towards the edge of the trail. Luckily no accidents for him. But this poor girl was riding toward us in one spot. Wobbling all over then right off the trail and into a creek. She was ok just embarassed.
