Trying to Get from Rockland to Kennerdell

April 26th, 2011 No comments

I had planned to take this day off for quite a while now. Nolan had a doctor’s appointment and Koben was off from school. What a good day to take off from work and spend it with the boys. The weather, however, had different ideas.

While the calendar said it was Spring, we had seen very few signs of its presence. We had rain, a sure sign of Spring; April showers bring May flowers. But we also had cold temperatures. It seemed to keep just warm enough to ward off the snow, but cool enough to confine us to the indoors, especially with the cold rain. Rain on a hot Summer’s day is welcomed with great jubilation. Rain on a cold Spring day is shunned like an unwanted guest. Koben and I were in for a visit from a much unwanted guest this morning.

The forecast had been all over the place, warm and clear to cool and rainy. The final forecast had us looking at possible rain as the morning went on, and 1pm was about the cutoff for dryness. Nolan had an afternoon appointment and it seemed like the morning would be the best time to get out and ride.

It was a crazy morning. I had to get Nolan to school and then get back to the house so Koben and I could get ready for the ride. Nolan decided to have a little spit up this morning and delayed our departure for daycare. I was feeling a little rushed now. We had to beat the rain. I cleaned him up and managed to not need a changing of the clothes for him (or me).

I did get Nolan to daycare on time and discussed the day’s strategy with Koben. We would stop at Shop-n-Save and get some donuts and drinks. Breakfast for nourishment and drinks for later in the day when it was really humid, as it as supposed to be. We got to the store and it started raining, not hard but enough to get us a little damp. We purchased our supplies and came out of the store, only to be greeted by an even harder rain. We ran to the car and headed home.

Koben and Dad’s First Bike Ride of the Year

April 10th, 2011 No comments

Finally, the weather has improved. This weekend was a drastic improvement over the past (what seems like an eternity) 6 months. Outside has been something that you are forced to endure in order to survive, not somewhere you go on purpose. And even more unfortunate for our family is the poor sick 11 month old, who has been sick since he was a poor sick 9 month old. Continuous ear infections do not make it possible to go outside in the bitter cold, and there were few days of play in the winter months.

But during those frigid winter days and nights, I was planning and researching, looking for a way to get the entire family more involved with my bike rides. The last two years, I have been riding solo, which is a relaxing way to spend several hours of the day, yet alone. I want to spend time with Dawn, Koben and Nolan and I want to ride on the bike trail. I also want to show Koben all of the cool things that I have discovered on my many rides from north to south to east and west. I guess it is that “kill two birds with one stone” mixed with the “I want to share the beautiful secrets which I have found.” So, I found some tools by which to accomplish these goals.

First, I would get a bike train attachment for Koben to ride. He is still young and kids bikes are not made for twenty-plus mile rides. He would make it a mile or two before giving up and heading for home. I cannot blame him for this, but I can help him. I can do the pedaling, at least most of it, and he can do the riding. After much research and thought, I settled on the Trek Mountain Train 201.

At first, Koben was apprehensive about riding on it. After all, he had been on his safe little bike, most of the time with training wheels, with a top speed of 5 mph for all of his bike riding life. Now, I was asking his to ride on the 20 inch bike at speeds of 15 mph and try to stay in balance with me. I was a little apprehensive too!

Getting Back Out There

October 17th, 2010 No comments

I tried to ride out to Fisherman’s Cove, but after climbing the steps up to the Belmar Bridge, I decided to turn back. I was not feeling well and had to lay on my back for 10 minutes as I feared I would either pass out or throw up. A disappointing ride. I think I need a few more training runs to get back for sure.
