    Taking Grandson to First Bike Event

    This should be fun. On Fathers Day, Natick, MA is holding the Tour de Natick for the 4th year. It includes a 25-mile ride that starts at 8:00 and a 6-mile Family ride that starts at 11:00. I have signed up to do the 25-miler and then the family ride with my 6 year old grandson, Noah. He will get a tee-shirt, ribbon, and free lunch. My daughter says he is so excited that he keeps telling everyone him and his papa are racing to Boston. How funny is that. I can't wait, it should be alot of fun.

    What a great thing for a 6-year old though. We have come a long way in some respects. When I was six all I heard was "stop bothering us and get outside"

    Sounds like a great day. Enjoy them while you can....they soon grow up and start driving cars instead of riding bikes with their grandparents

    Hope you and your grandson have a great day. Even at 6, it'll be one he remembers!
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    You'll both have a wonderful time, I just know it. Riding with my grandsons is one of the great pleasures of my life.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
