When was the last time you rode a bicycle?

Posted by   + Show Post

 DD21 and I went for a bike ride yesterday.  It is something we always say were going to do but never do it.  We rode for about 6 miles.

We rode on a back country road with green rolling hills, cows and their babies staring at us while chewing their cuds( all the babies were white) big houses with smoke coming out of the chimneys,  horses, goats, chickens and peacocks in their yards.  

When was the last time you went for a bike ride?  Who did you go with and where did you ride?

 I dont blame her, could be scary for a little one to be so out of control.  I hope she will overcome it.

Quoting LEK19:

About two years ago she wiped out going down a hill. She basically took a little over a year to feel comfortable and trust herself again on a bike. This past year we lived in a small town on a hill. There was no place for her to really practice without loading up the bike and going somewhere else. The end of this past summer she really rode without training wheels. So she is a bit behind. We now live in a "flatter" town, so we are hoping she will get good enough in her biking skills to go for family rides. She still spooks when it comes to hills.

Quoting Esmrlda:

 Your little dd dosent have any interest in bike riding?

Quoting LEK19:

Sounds like you had a nice ride! The last time I rode a bike was about 9 yrs ago. My SO and I rode together a few times, but most of the time it was by myself through town and in the country.
