Now the evenings are getting lighter and the weather has been nice we have been getting out and about on our bikes a lot more.
There are a couple of bridleways close to home so we have been adding these to our rides so that Luke gets a chance to go "off roading" Unfortunately these "off roading" sessions seem to generate a ridiculous amount of punctures and on every ride we had done recently we have had at least one puncture to mend at the side of the road.
We are very lucky to have lots of choice when we set off on our bikes, there are plenty of quiet roads for us to ride on and beautiful scenery.
We are keeping a record of the miles we are covering, just to see how far we go. We can generally manage a 10 mile ride during the week and longer ones at the weekend.
The longest ride we did last year was 47 miles and Luke did incredibly well considering he was only 8, I not quite up to going that far again just yet, but in a couple of weeks we should all be ready for some longer rides.
