11/08/15 Ride with my 6 year old daughter to check out the Barnes and Noble "Maker" event, which was a bust, but lots of fun at 2 parks and "the secret slides" and she made the 10-11 mile ride on her own bike with no problem--pretty cool. Rode my SS hardtail, didn't think to take my road bike.
04/19/14 Rode my SS hardtail with a Fox 140mm 34 fork towing my daughter to Discovery Science Center... Long story, but basically it was the only bike that would fit the trailer attachment... Fun day. Hope to get out for at least a short ride tomorrow, even though that will probably not be politically correct with the wife; but I don't get or take the time to ride during the week and had my daughter all day today and I need the exercise and the spiritual/mental break that comes with a MTB ride. She's great, so she won't give me grief even though she will be disappointed if I do go.
08/04/13 Another jaunt to the park and back per my daughter's request--how cool is that? Of course there was a lot of time spent on a couple of the playgrounds off the bike trail... Had to rush home for a call I had to do for work; just made it. My singlespeed isn't good for going fast on paved bike trails, even my daughter was complaining that we "weren't winning".
07/27/13 Had low energy all week, riding hasn't sounded good, Finally went to DR on Thurs, turned out I had walking pneumonia. Took my daughter for a ride on my singlespeed hardtail MTB with the wehoo trailer to the park and back. Nice ride and time.
