This is a poor quality photo, this is my oldest daughter and I on a ride this past fall. We were on a twenty mile ride, on the way back, about 8 miles out she got a flat and then I realized I had not packed a tube for her bike and did not have any patches. I ended up stuffing leaves in the tire to make it ride-able but that didn't work.
This is my boy about four years ago, we were out on the mountain bike trail.
Several times a year we have a 30 mile ride that he loves, 15 out to the ice cream shop and 15 back. This shot is at the end of this past summer. He does the ride on a 20" wheel bmx bike with wide knobby tires and we average about 12-15 mph. When he gets a geared road bike I think I will probably have a hard time keeping up with him.

My wife shot this of me, with my new pride-and-joy.

Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.
I did the LBL classic last year, somewhere in June I believe. Or was it August? Anyways, it was a lot of fun: 150k in the good old Ardennes and the weather was sweet to us
I had to look up "normcore." Thank you ... I think.
i think I look awfully paunchy in that picture. I'm not used to that. I'm also startled to see how bald I am in pictures.
