Cycling through the generations ..

We've been teaching Stuart's grandson to ride a bicycle independently and last weekend, were delighted when he mastered starts and stops, so we popped round to share the news with Stuart's Dad.  Gramps couldn't wait to hop on his own bike to join son and Great Grandson for a celebratory cycle along the lane!

Great Grandson leading his Grandad & Great Grandad up the lane!

Paula's Pedal power!

As I mentioned in a previous post, it's been almost forty years since I last cycled, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, so I borrowed my daughter's bicycle for another practice on Saturday afternoon and absolutely loved it!  I'm still a bit wobbly if I peddle too slowly and heaven only knows what you do with gears (they didn't have them in my day!) but it was so much fun!  I am now determined to purchase a cycle this year ... I'll be fifty in a few months and have decided it's about time this bear maker swapped her sedentary swivel chair for a (hopefully!) soft saddle, to start having some fresh air fun!
