This past weekend was a direct result of this contest or way of life.
My wife and I took our little one for a 16-mile bicycle ride on the path from Clyde to Fremont.
The only part of me that was sore afterward was my butt. Big butt on little seat is not a good combo.
Last year at this time I'm not so sure I could have completed the ride without complications.
I know 16 miles isn't all that far but pulling a 50 pound kid along on a trail bike is a little more difficult. It was a good workout and good family bonding.
