Aren’t bikes just the best investment ever?
I know they aren’t cheap (though second-hand is fine!) but bikes provide hour upon hour of lovely fresh air and exercise and outside time together.
I have had some lovely times trailing behind my kids or even walking along as they ride back and forth just being together.
We like to go down by the river, along the canal or to the National Water Sports Centre together and pootle along. We like to be beside water! It is almost time for my daughter to lose her stabilisers and I guess then she will be whizzing rather than pootling.
I feel quite sad about the stabilisers going . You give your children roots and wings though don’t you and I guess its time for Lisi to stretch those wings.
In some ways perhaps a mum is never as ready as her child for this to happen!
Lovely bike ride days with little kids…how precious. Seeing them grow so precious too. Ah,the contradictions of parenting.
