I've done some pretty cool things with my bicycle but my recent mini tours take top honors as the coolest and most impactful....At least for me. In the past week I've done two mini tours. I took each of my kids out individually for a long ride, a fun camping experience followed by a long ride back. Each of these rides involved the kids riding further than they've ridden before on both the ride to camp and the ride back.
Now I have a lot more to say but I want to do something a bit different with this experience and I may even make a short video that I hope will encourage other cycling parents to do the same. Until then, here are just a few pics.
This was the most rewarding thing I've ever done as a dad. I learned so much about my kids. I'm so proud of them and I feel so close to them. While the ride was really for them, it turned out to be just as much (or more) for me. Bicycles are powerful. I am so thankful for these two amazing children.
