Tour of CA as viewed by a 4 year old...

As my four year old daughter climbed on my lap last night during the race...

Me: See how fast those guys are riding their bikes?

Her: Yeah...are you going to do that, Daddy?

Me: No, I'm to old and slow.

Her: (Looks at me) But I could, when I get older?

Me: Sure you could

Her: (looking back at TV) Yeah, when I get older...'cause these guys aren't using their training wheels.

I tell my kids to look to see if they can find Aham or Psimet in the peloton.

My six year old tells me that I am faster than they are and that I could beat all of them in a race. If he only knew how slow his daddy really is.

I'm sure they say..."Silly daddy...psimet is slow, and Mr. aham is off the front. The peloton is for the dogs. Next time you get ready to say something that silly just stop and ask yourself 'what would Jens do?'"

That is great. I do a charity ride every July with my kids in the bike trailer. We watch the TdF and it gets them pumped up for our "race." Couple years ago we had a mechanical and they cried as the "peloton" left us behind.
