Biker Chick

I think we have an official mountain biker on our hands! She is getting to the point where she wants to ride in the woods and down single track trails. Trails that give me pause btw. But, she’s all for it!

She wanted to take on a “hard” trail in the woods. Had to hop off a few times and get going again, but her sense of adventure is so strong!

She still has trouble here and there, had to hop off a few times on the trail in the picture, it was more technical than what she’s been riding on.

Our summer bike rides have been the highlight of summer for me! For one I’m enjoying being on my bike way more than running (although I’m getting back to running as well) it’s way easier on my bad knee. Second Sky has made huge progress from the beginning of summer to now. She’s so much more self sufficient, getting pretty good at her gears, and willing to take on pretty much anything the park has to offer.

Mark gets all the bike riding credit…he is the one that has taught her how to ride her bike, and how to adjust to her new bike with hand brakes and gears. 

Now we just have to get her some cold weather gear so we can keep up the skills during fall/winter. I hate to start over again in the spring. The winter wind chill on the bike though…that can be pretty cold. For now we are getting in as many family rides as we can while the weather is still accommodating.

Happy Biking!
