Fathers Day Cycle
Sunday, June 16, 2013
Today has been a good day health wise! We'd planned a cycle ride for today and even though it was raining a bit, we stuck to it! To keep me on track, I tried out one of the spark recipes in my slow cooker - I can highly recommend the Bourbon Street Chicken - so it was all ready and waiting when we got back.
I also packed a lunch, so we weren't tempted by the pub halfway round!
The route itself was on a disused rail line and was fairly traffic free and smooth going. Great for cycling with children. We finally broke the 10 mile mark and actually ended up doing nearer 12 at a much more decent pace. Last time we went out, I could probably have walked quicker!!
So we had a break for lunch and a break to repair a puncture(!) but it was a pretty good ride. I think without the little one, may have managed this without a lunch stop, but his stamina is building and we'll get there!
