Kids and Biking
I have four kids, 1 boy oldest, Scouts also: Star working on life, working on the 50 mile bike ride also, already
done the 50 mile canoe trip, 2 days. Last weekend me and the two youngest girls, ages 7 and 9 took a 10
mile road trip with another 3 miles of hard packed trails, packed lunch, they did not want come back, teenage
daughter fastest long distance runner in here grade, but can not beat old dad at the 2 mile bike sprint,(Laugh)..
but I could not beat her in a race across the front yard on foot. It's something to see your 7 year old pound out 13 miles
of riding and want to go more...as I am typing this, my son, and oldest daughter were headed out for a 20 mile
ride with me, half trail and road, thunderstorm canceled that... oh my daughter was reading over my shoulder
and reminded me she beat me once, I was coasting the last couple hundred yards and she pasted me with maybe 20 yards to go, Quote: Dad never let your guard down...(laugh)..she did win, Great Family Sport...
