Biking with my grand daughters is fun. I'm trying to teach my youngest grand daughter how to ride a two wheel bike safely.
Great family fun.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

Thanks, MARI-SERV for those two links about cycling. I was surprised to read that cycling just 20 miles per week can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by 50%.
That distance is doable each week if it broken down into 1/2 hour trips.

I got my bike out today but didn't get too far - sore from not driving it all winter. I'll try again tomorrow.
Driving a bike makes a person feel younger for some reason. emoticon

Get out your bikes and tune them up !! emoticon

A little Spring fun challenge beginning on Saturday April 13th. Whether it's riding "outside" on your bike or "inside" on your stationary. We had so much fun with this one in the past emoticon

Our Spring challenge will run for 6 weeks to see how many minutes and / or days we can increase our riding in a 6 weeks period and hopefully at the end , we will have developed a new exercise program that can take us into Autumn. emoticon

You choose your own style and set your own goal. If you can not ride outside for any reason you can do this challenge with an indoor bike of any kind.

For the Beginner Riders you must:
1. Commit to a minimum of 2 days riding for a minimum of 15 mins to start
2. Increase to at least 3 days riding for a minimum of 20 minutes withing the 6 weeks

For the Non-beginnr riders you must:
1. Commit to a minimum of 2 days riding for a minimum of 15 mins to start
2. Double your days (4) and minutes (30) by the end of the 6 weeks


We will be set up on April 13th to join and track this challenge under our Team Goals forum,

Please stop by here on a regular basis and let us know how you are doing.

MAKE SURE YOU WEAR YOUR HELMET!!
