My commute, the long way around, avoids most traffic and is on paved trails near a river. I wanted to go ride a portion of it to see how it is from the ground. My son wanted to come along, which made me happy. Unfortunately both of us need to lose weight, so this may be a perfect thing to get us active. We are going to a nutrition class this week as well, so we can learn to eat better and healthier.
We had fun, and went about 6 miles.
