    Father's Day ride

    Let me start by wishing every father, father to be a very happy father's day.

    There were no plans for today so I got up early to watch a little bit of the 24 Hours of LeMans, I love autoracing almost as much as riding but don't have a race car so it's just a TV affair.



    After that woke my kid, prepared breakfast and off we went to a trail about 1 hour away from San Juan on a town called Florida. My neighboor Jay tagged along on his Fuji and I rode my Unit, the camera also found it's way and took some pics of the Little DeViL in action.













    This has been the best father's day so far for me and hope that you had a great one too.

    Whatever you do today,
    may burn your ass tomorrow."

    Thanks for the pics Dirt Devil. Looks like you had a great day! A little warm and humid here in Virginia. Looks nice under that canopy.

    I'm about to go chop down a few trees. I was just playing trains and building Lincoln Log houses. The older is at a neighbors playing video games and the baby is napping. #4 is safely still in mommies belly. It's a good day here too!

    I went for a nice leisurely 10-mile road jaunt with my 15-year-old son ... we were on the road by about 7:45 am, and it was gorgeous: sunny, light breeze, and a simple, level ride, just enjoying being out with him.

    Did a 38-mile ride with my wife and two teenage daughters. My wife and 17-yr old daughter rode their singles and I rode the tandem with the 19-yr old. Took plenty of stops while the younger one's getting her endurance levels up, although she does run track at school, and we stopped at Peet's for our reward on the way home. Was a nice day and we got back before it got too hot.

    Took a post dinner ride with my son around the neighborhood. He got stoked at seeing 17mph on his computer. Yes, he is just 7 years old:

    He learned to ride on this monstrosity.

    The silver and black Trek is his new ride. Even cooler was the LBS throwing in a club jersey gratis.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Your son has a nice Fisher!

    I took my family to the lake for a ride in our inflatable boat. We carried all the cargo in the new trailer I just finished building.

    My wife watched our 4 year old son in the AM and let me get out for a 22 mile ride down to the harbor and back. Then it was off to the in-law's house up in Los Angeles to watch World Cup, Golf and the NBA finals and toss back a coupe of beers.

    It was a good day!
