Kids Week, Day 3

Another day, another bike ride. I think it's great that grandparents and grandkids can go on semi serious bike rides together. By that I mean more than just around the block.

Sue was wishing for a Go Pro for our rides, and the kids piped up that dad had one. Oh really?!

So they brought it over; we put it on JJ's helmet, and off we went. I managed to edit about 19 minutes down to 1 minute.

I really should add music. I have done so in the past, but I mainly do videos in passing for the memory book as it were, whereas I take still photography a little more seriously. But we shall see.

Toward the end of the vid, you will see a portion of our Mississippi River.

After lingering by the water for awhile, we took JJ to the mountain bike park. You have see both kids and even moi there previously, but you have not seen him doing tricky bike sorts of things in the parking lot.

Of course, no kids week would be complete without a stop at Tims.

That looks like a nice little ride, and if the weather was hot I'd like to paddle in the river, always assuming it doesn't have too much hostile wildlife! I wish I'd learned to ride my bike earlier, I'd have been doing those stunts. How cool! But today, I knackered my knee going up a hill. With my ankle bust, cycling was the only exercise I was getting so I hope the knee's feeling better tomorrow. I really don't want to have to take up the trapeze :)
