At the moment I’m so glad I have kids who love riding their bikes. Their pace is exactly mine, when it comes to mountain biking. They want to stop and eat snacks every 10 minutes. They take their time climbing uphill. My husband chooses the easier trails. The adults want the kids to enjoy biking so they do silly things to make them want more. I want more! It’s a million times more enjoyable than just powering up a mountain to get maximum fitness.
I don’t feel like an unfit slob when I ride with the kids and I love it!
We took the kids and an extra friend on a Lazy Lizard bike ride yesterday and I really enjoyed a few things about it. I love the trail, the flow of climbs and descends make the trail manageable, it’s busy (which some people won’t like but I do because I feel like there’s enough noise around to keep the wildlife away) and the kids can do it. It’s my kind of bike ride!

Nine of us traveled to Whitefish for a biking bachelorette weekend this past weekend and I was the only one who didn’t bike. It wasn’t a hard decision for me as I still have no feeling in most of my foot and if I do too much my leg gets super achy and I’m just a little tired of achy. So I stayed back and did some swimming and hot tubbing and a bit of walking, which was really good because I’m supposed to be walking on an incline, good for the stiffness, and I haven’t been.
I’m okay with being the oddball in a group. I’m getting good at being that person. I like that everyone has accepted this part of me. I had no grief for it, although I had a great excuse, but I feel as though if I had not broken my leg this wonderful group of bike crazy women would have been very cool with me not participating (to my face). I love that.

Rod took this photo of Ronan and Henry during his bike ride last night. It was a special occasion, Ronan’s first time on Hyper-extension with his new bike. Look how happy he is (on the left)! This is Henry’s millionth time but he’s just as happy as Ronan…if not more.
