Best father's day so far!!!!!!

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to share some pics and comments on my fathers day ride with my kids and wife yesterday. They rode 20 miles in a little over 3 hours with plenty of rest stops. we got rained on but the kids loved it even more. I could not believe the 5 year old made it all the way with his little bike. I need to get him something better to ride

Beautiful pix. I'm amazed your 5 yr old rolled 20 miles on, is that a 12" bike? Amazing. And 3 hrs seems pretty quick to me. My almost 7 yr old has a few 20-30 miles in on the trailabike but I still haven't asked him to go more than a couple miles on his own 16"er.

Yep 12" bike. i kept asking him if he wanted to keep going and he kept saying yes. This is the first time he does 20 miles. Our normal Sunday Family ride has never been more than 10 miles. Even today he is still excited about it.

Oh man! That was you! I saw you, nice family. That climb on the I-4 overpass is the best hill I got.
