Tammy worked as a substitute teacher at her new college today. It was a day shift, and she was on her way out the door by 8:00. The day was promising to be reasonably nice, so I spent some time before lunch tuning up my commuter bike and the kids’ bikes and then after lunch we threw the bikes on the rack and headed out for a ride. We started at the Riverside Club, where the kids had tennis once upon a time. We rode along the Bow River all the way past downtown and past the Zoo until we arrived at Columbia College.
By that time, Ian had had enough. I miscalculated how much farther it was past downtown to get to the college. I figured it was 8-10 km, tops. It was 16 km. Oops. 😳
So we got there as Tammy was ready to leave. We put Ian’s bike in the Golf and Tammy drove him home, while Miranda and I made the return trip. I was really surprised at how well she did on such a long ride. Yes, her bum’s sore, but she did a great job of keeping up on such a long ride. I think she’s inherited my cycling genes, if not the desire.
