Christopher, I found this team when I was checking out your page. I am still in the beginning phases of riding. 5-7 miles 5 days a week, with my two smallest boys. I was soooo happy when my hubby got me that bike last year! I hadn't been on anything other than a stationary bike in ages. Except the one time I tried to ride my teen sons mongoose. That was quite attractive, let me tell you. My knees came up to my chin. hehehe.
Jim, I went and checked out the bike adventure you spoke of. Unfortunately, that time of year is very busy for me. Thank you very much for the information. I hope everybody has a great weekend...

I already like your sense of humor .... at least that narrowed down the part of the state you were from;-) LOL

I'm from Oshkosh, WI. I was wondering if you were in the UP area? How far are you from door County WI the Pennisula that sticks out from WI? There is a century ride on Sept 7th if you are interested.

Welcome to the site. I thought I was bad with 4 lovely children. I have 3 boys and a little girl ranging in ages of 17, 15, 10, 8.

Keep pedaling and enjoy the knowledge from the site.

Jim

Forgot to ask ..... where in Michigan are you from?

It's great that you take your kids with you! My two yougest ones are a little older (12 & 14) than yours, but they ride bikes with me too. We have so much fun on our rides and I'm so glad that they are learning to have fun while they exercise.

Glad you're joining us!

Hi Andrea,
Welcome to the group. I ride with my kids too ages 7 & 9, they listen really well to mommy and stop at every stop sign but I'm still nervous at times when we cross the road. Some drives are so rude.
I know what you mean about the seat, I recently changed my rock hard seat to a comfy padded one that even has springs under the seat to absorb the bumps and it's made for a women, extra padding in the front. It made my rides so much more enjoyable. I have family in Windsor Ontario and when I was in my teens we use to cross the boarder and go shopping, that was so much fun. Happy cycling.

Hi there. My name is Andrea. I am married to a great guy & I have 5 children. My best Spark friend is "Happy Destiny." 5 days a week I ride my bicycle around town. I have the 3 yr. old in his seat, and keep my 7 yr. old directly in front of me. My 3 teens join us occasionally, seeming as they are much too busy for riding with mom. hehehe... I have always loved riding bikes. I don't care if it is stationary or mobile. The only problem I have with it, is, the seats aren't cushy enough. I swear I feel like strapping a big ole pillow to it. Nice meeting all of you & good luck on your goals to a happy healthier you!
