It is my personal opinion that big cyclists breed little cyclists and keep the momentum going. Kids will have a difficult time learning how to ride comfortably, safely, and regularly if their parents don't mirror those same values. When I see Big Brother smiling and giggling away as he charges along on his Strider
, it gives me great joy and hope that I might be doing something right in this crazy life of parenting. I look forward to the day that he can keep up with us on his own and even the day that he passes us by, riding to his own cadence and to his own destination. For now, however, I will just relish in his gleeful "wheeeee!" as he rolls down his "mountains."
I snuck out to grab dinner from La Fiesta! Nothing like a jumbo wet burrito to end the day...Luckily I rode my heart out to get there and even hit 24.4 mph on a straightaway! I think the breeze might have been a bit of a help as my way back averaged 14 mph. However, it's pretty amazing to get trucking on the Mundo. She can definitely handle her own.
