I don't know why I had already put away much of my winter gear, so I ended up looking a little makeshift in my layering while riding my bike the other day. And it was miserable. Yesterday and today I planned better, and it felt better but not great. So I will focus on Saturday's Burley ride with hope of a warmer day and another Burley ride tomorrow.
It was gorgeous out and 48 degrees on Saturday. It was the inaugural run of the Burley and the twins were so cute riding behind me, I am sure I was risking all of our lives with every peek behind. Sammy got to be the first to go on a test run, and I have a picture of him in my mind that unfortunately I can't share. A little bit of worry turned to wonder and then delight as we got underway.
When Anders was added, the world heard screams of delight (he is he more vocal of the two) as we rode down to the lake near our Minneapolis home. Combine that with the hum of my studded tires on pavement (used the winter bike) and I am sure we turned some heads/ears with the spectacle. The whole family had fun. Sarah hollered at me to ride safer periodically, and the twins were weary from the excitement by the time we got home. Sam even conked out on the way.
