Hello

Hi everyone!

I just bought a new bike for fitness, commuting and family activity. Had an old Trek 800 Mountain Track with doodle bug trailer. New bike is a Trek Skye and now the five year old rides an Adams trail-a-bike and the 3 year old is still in the doodle-bug.

Right now I mainly ride my bike in light traffic neighborhood streets and greenways. When the kids are older Id like to try out a road bike. Nice to have a forum like this! See ya'll around.

Taking a family bike ride is one of our favorite Saturday morning activities. I see you're in TX too. The San Antonio Mission bike trail is nice to take kids to.

Thanks Sui Blue Wind! Thats where Im headed. I was lurking in the Texas thread. Too bad there arent family friendly rides. Its either roadies I cant keep up with or MTB trails a kid trailer wouldnt fit through.

I know what you mean. It's hard to find a group that will ride in a family type of way. But you CAN start your own group. Get some people from the neighborhood, perhaps?

Or from work?

Thats true! I don't see why not. I pass a million stroller walking moms why not get them on bikes?
