Going to be a first time grandpa!!!!
As if I need extra incentive to get on my bike and ride my son informed me this week that he and his bride are going to have a baby. Getting healthier was one of my goals for riding, now I have additional goals.

I will hopefully have a few more years before this comes up for me. My daughters are 17 and 19. When it does, I'll be sure that "bike rides with grandpa" are a regular thing. :)

Time to get one of those child trailers until they are old enough to ride their own.

Congrats on your first grandchild! I bet you two will have loads of fun bike riding in the future!

Would buying a bike for "it" for Christmas be too much?

gapwedge, you now get to spoil the grandkid and send him or her home when he/she gets old enough. :p

When my Grandson was just 3 weeks old, my daughter brought Him by the house and said. Watch him while I go shopping !
I watched him sleep for three hours.

Yes, there will be a tike bike ready and waiting. And spoil? Sooooo looking forward to that. First things first. I am more determined than ever to get myself in shape. I want to be around a long time and maybe be the one to buy my grandchild their first road bike.:love:
