Trailerless park ride
I guess I can't call them trailer park rides anymore since the burleys have been out grown :( But on the plus side the kids can ride the distance now. Last night was 7.5 miles with about 5 miles of single track. Tonight was almost nine miles with a blacklabel and some super winds. Patrick can avg 9 mph on a single speed 16" bike. He complete the ride with us from my house to Colby Park and back (with a 20 minute break at the park) in 1 hour of ride time 8.9 miles. I was impressed, the only kid complaining at the end was Abbie on the back of the tandem 'it's cold' I said stop soft pedaling and work and you will warm up. However 16 miles in 2 days is alot for little legs, but the spring is only beginning.
