A family that bikes together is one thing and a family that tackles a 35-mile tour as their first bike ride of the season is another.
It may have been just a tad crazy but we did it with less than 24 hours notice last weekend. I've been prompting the kid to ride with us but the answer was, "Um, no." Until Saturday afternoon when she declared she wanted to ride the Tour of Saints the next morning. I'm no fool so, without further questioning, we hit Nike, bought her some fun biking shorts and a t-shirt, loaded up the bikes, packed our snacks and were ready when we hit the trail 7am in the morning.
Next up, the St. Paul Classic in September at a mere 30 miles.
