Hello from the Carolinas

I have been a wanna be cyclist since forever.. but cyclists always seem to be really fast, really fit people in spandex. I am none of those things I have been riding bikes socially for my whole life, but with my kids starting to use bikes, and trying to encourage them to get outside, I realize I need more info, and general help and advice, and I've really enjoyed browsing these forums so far, so I decided to join.

Currently I have a Madsen cargo bike. I've had it for 2 years now. When I bought it, I was hauling a 6, 4, and 2 year old to small 2ish mile adventures one way. My now 8 and 6 year olds are both on their own bikes (ByK Es) and we are taking the bucket bike and the 4 year old and really putting on mileage. So far our longest ride was just under 20 miles for the day (with LOTS of stops and water/snack/park breaks!)

We mostly ride around our really decent city and suburbs and our ever growing greenway straight from our home... where i'm trying my best to teach them out to get along on two wheels.

This is the fall I hope to actually ride them to school with bikes. Fingers crossed!
