After months being cooped up in the house with an exceptionally snowy spring, my family is beyond ready to get active again. Last summer we took Nora out in our little bike trailer. We thought she’d love it. Instead I think she felt trapped. She enjoyed it for a short time and then wanted out mid-ride. That ride was a milestone for me as one of my first large muscle activities together after my bed rest and I was so proud to have actually done it.
Soon after our first ride my husband came home with a Weehoo for my daughter. I have to admit I was skeptical at first. My husband has always enjoyed biking and he was determined to find a way for my daughter to enjoy the ride as well. We were so encouraged to get out and about as a family. Well he was right. She LOVES this bike. It connects to the back of an adult bike and has a fully supported seat but the child has the ability to pedal! The child doesn’t have to pedal but if they do it does help the rider.
We took Nora’s little two wheel bike out last week with hopes that she’d be excited to try some lessons with the training wheels again. She gave it a try for a while and then gave up saying, “I wanna do the fun red bike with daddy instead!” Moments later she was zooming around the block with her daddy and the smile on her face said it all. She loves it.
I love that I can get outdoors to enjoy the beautiful bike trails near our home that are paved and a great option for our family rides. I can’t wait to get out and see how much further I can go this summer compared to last since I’ve been working out regularly now. I can make it five miles on the recumbent bike at the gym. I wonder what that translates to on a real bike?
