We finally got my wife a bike, which means the whole family can finally ride together. For her maiden voyage, we rode from Peden Stadium to the Athens City Poo via the bike path. VWe carried all of our swim gear and lunch in the back of the trailer. We had lunch and swam with the boys for some time, then rode back to the car. It was also my son's first time off the trail-a-bike and on his training wheels. He had a hard time coming back to the car, but we managed. My youngest son did great in the trailer with his older brother, as it was his first time riding. It was a fantastic first family outing on bikes, and I am very excited about our future rides together!
Today’s ride was a far cry from Saturday. Temps in the low 50’s and the fact that I have Monday afternoons off made or some excellent riding conditions. The bike path was still frozen about one mile south of Eclipse Company town, but I expect another day or so should fix that. I rode from Peden out to the frozen section, then turned around and rode to Holzer, and finally back to Peden Stadium. All told is was a good ride of 17.75 miles and 78 minutes of ride time. It’s great to get two rides in the same week. With rain coming toward the end of the week, it might be a while before I can ride again. Nevertheless, it appears that Spring has finally arrived in Athens, Ohio.
