Unfortunately I don't get to commute on my bike anymore, my job requires a truckload of tools and travelling around all day, so my 'everyday' riding is weekends with my wife and daughter.

A quick trip on my Raleigh Superbe to a local park for lunch today:

Closer to home, Apex Park, Hawthorndene. Funnily enough, we rode along the Torrens the day before, to Bonython Park. In fact, My (almost) 2 year old and I went for 4 rides this weekend, she enjoyed most of it.

WNG, nice pics!

Rhetorical question: Where do the Diamondbacks go for spring training? Wisconsin? Mexico? Florida?

It's a great path to ride with kids. I live just over an hour north of the city from there and use to drive in and ride before my back op but I used to ride it like a race course then ride along the coast.

It is! And my daughter loves to ride her own wheeled machines around Apex Park.
I've been getting a bit silly with the Raleigh Superbe when solo, looking forward to getting my Healing 'path racer' project rolling when I find a headset. The Superbe really isn't suite to spirited riding on the dirt.

Not a Boeing. It is a replica of....something. It is similar to a Curtiss Hawk. Built by John Pike. No matter what, a nice pic and a cool bipe.

I had to revamp the stoker drive setup on our tandem. My son's growing at a pretty good clip these days, and we've had to raise the seat a lot since last fall. The issue with the kid stoker kit, it has a 42 tooth ring while the stoker crank has a 36. In the past I had the kid kit raised high as to keep the crank arms from bangin each other. Well I finally got around to putting a 42t ring on the stoker(so I could lower the kid cranks, and the saddle height as well).

Hopefully in another year, He'll be tall enough so we can 86 the kid crank.

those tire "bubbles" are blows, where air is trapped inside between the cords in the curing process. Return to manufacturer, thats a warrantable issue.
