We’ve joined the rest of town and have become bike owners. I’m thrilled, like beyond thrilled, because there are all kinds of fun things to do that are just a tad bit too far to walk to, but perfect for a bike ride (hello frozen yogurt shop!).
Last sunday, we bought two bikes and a kid-trailer thing for the boys to ride in. I was nervous that the boys would hate the cart, but they beg, like literally on hands and knees, to go for rides. It’s the perfect solution for Josh’s commute from the Ferry in the city to his office and it’s nice for the boys and I to have alternate transportation if we’re wanting to make a quick run to the store or go down to the library. Plus, Judah’s school is within biking distance and if we ever have car troubles again, we won’t need to rent a vehicle and Judah won’t miss class.
The only downside, my legs and booty hurt from all that exercise. The upside? All that exercise.
P.S. The boys do have helmets and we’re working on keeping them on their heads. Until they master it, we’re sticking to the bike trails in our neighborhood; which actually lead to most of the places we want to go like the library, parks and grocery store}
