    Toilet breaks for a 8yo girl

    My 8yo daughter wants to do longer rides with me. But where I like to ride there aren't any many toilets or traffic and sometimes they may be 2km too far. :)

    I chain it up to the bike racks at school. On the rare occasions I have ridden with an empty tagalong I feel like a bit of a doofus. I keep expecting people to ask me if I have lost a child. :)

    I ride with 8yo (on her own bike) and 6yo (tagalong) when I can convince them it will be fun. I guess that's about once a week. It helps that school is only about 1.5km away and it's on the way to...

    Blaming the victim?

    There isn't a single lock that can't be defeated. I hear that co2 works really well on most locks.

    I am not too disappointed. I made it the 72km to Inglewood, and that was my first goal. I should have had some lunch and then pushed myself to get out there again, but maybe next time.
