Ride with Daughter (with Video)

Did another 45 mile ride with my daughter on the first sunny day we've had since she came home for vacation. Here are two videos from the ride:

Looks like she's getting a lot of enjoyment out of the bike! Maybe you should keep it

Always nice to ride with your daughter. I know that I really treasure the time riding or running with mine when she visits. Since she is only 140 miles away at grad school, we get to ride or run together with at least some regularity.

She's faster than you. I guess you'd better "train" more and take fewer pics.
