Amazing Weather in Southern Wisconsin

I cannot believe how beautiful it is today. My nephew is in town so we went out for a ride this morning. We did a route I was doing on a daily basis two years ago. When we finished, I had to go pick up my new glasses and he went out for another ride. Must be nice to be half my age.

One of the things you learn as you mature- Let the tyres down on a younger riders bike and get their brakes binding.

But some days you just have to ride. Even if you have to take a youngster with you and keep the pace down so they can show how fit they are for the second ride.

Thanks for the tip on the tires. ;-) I'll try that next time he's in town.

We're having similar weather in Minnesota. 83 today. I went to a hay ride and corn maze with the nieces today, then went for a bike ride with one of them. We came home and I went out two more times. If I hadn't I'd be really upset with myself when the snow flies.
