Sat. ride with the wife

Had a fun day out for a ride, went to Cherry Creek path for a nice stroll. I had a great time and Jess has officially started the 2010 Bike season for herself today WOO HOOO!!!!! Didn't get many shots. I am working on that. I love that my wife rides with me.

Sweet smile. So, how long before you have her climbing in the snow and rocks?

It's great that your wife rides with you... my wife just doesn't care for cycling and I have tried to get her into riding for several years. As for you comment about the lack of photos, don't feel bad, I always tell myself that I'm going to take photos to post on BF and for whatever reason I never seem to stop and take photos. I'll try and snap some shots tomorrow but don't hold your breath!

LOL I don't see that happening. She is far more of a fair weather and smoother trail rider. She has done a couple MTB trails with me but I don't push it because I want her to continue to bike with me

Yeah I started slow, worked my way up from there. And I hear you on the pics, It's easy to leave the camera in the bag

Got my wife back on her bike yesterday. She fell an banged up her knee a few weeks ago and hadn't been riding. She agreed to take a ride to one of the beaches in the area (totally flat ride) then ride to breakfast and her knee did fine. I've really missed riding with her.

Aww, Peter_C's wife just signed up! I guess as long as she keeps riding with you that's the important thing!
