Since then, I've got a bike and we've also got a trailer for the kids to sit in.
Initially F wasn't too keen on the trailer, so both new acquisitions have been mostly gathering dust for a few months. Well, my bike has been gathering dust. Dave has taken SP on rides in the trailer, and he loves it.
But on a recent retrial, F was much happier in the trailer, and we've been going on a few short rides.
So I've set myself the challenge. Ride for Refugees here I come. 25km, in 11 weeks time.
I'm not going to be silly about doing the whole course if it's too much - if I need to have a rest or turn around before the halfway point, I will. And I won't be pulling the trailer that day - Dave gets to pull SP & I think F will sit this one out. Dave's thinking of doing the first 25km lap with trailer, then another lap by himself, and he'll probably still finish before me ;)
It feels good to have a goal.
