After weeks of research, deliberation, patience and far too many mix-ups, our new bikes, complete with baby seats, were finally ready for us. And this fine city of ours treated us with the most beautiful weather for our very first family bike ride today!
Thankfully, we were able to take our first ride on the prettiest bike path in Georgetown that goes along the Potomac and most importantly, is free from cars, as it’s been some time since either of us have rode bikes, especially me (sorry, Odette)!
Olin did great except for the time midway through the ride when he took his helmet off because “his head was itchy” and Odette, well, she started strong (for the first 5 minutes) and then sort of half-cried the rest of the way, but not because of some dislike for the bike (thankfully), but because of teeth troubles.
All in all it was a great time and we are looking forward to many more family rides to come. I can’t wait to see what our path looks like in the Fall!
