I want to ride my bicycle...

Oct 11, 2011

This weekend Chris and I bit off a little more than we could chew with a 17 mile bike ride to Seal Beach.  Keeping in mind I have not set a foot on a bicycle in over 10 years I think I was being a little ambitious stepping foot onto a (much to big) borrowed bike and expecting to make the ride there and back in without crying or throwing up.  But this was a trial run to see if biking would be something that Chris and I are interested in...and regardless of the last minute phone call to Chris's dad for a ride home, we LOVED it.

The morning of, I woke up fearful of Scarlett's future response to being stuck in a tiny bike seat for two hours.  My heart dropped when with the initial take off, Scarlett screamed and cried to get off of the bike, after the first 30 minutes of  ride, she was bobbing and flowing to the movement of the tires and spent the entire remaining 1 1/2 hours talking to anything that would listen, or not listen. 

Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera to capture the monumental moment of collapsing onto the Main Street grass and letting the girls roam free after two hours of bike ride captivity...but just know that every day since Saturday this has become a staple in Scarlett's daily attire...I think she approves of the new Becher family hobby.
