oh my – we are two weeks from kindergarten! well –
I better make a summer re-cap otherwise I won't remember anything…

in june we rode our bikes from Snowmass to Basalt (mostly downhill thank goodness). It was a beautiful Sunday morning and we rode right to breakfast at Wienerstube!


with warm days finally here – and snow free trails – we rode our bikes to basalt yesterday. jeremy had tilly on the trail-a-bike attached to his bike.  i was lucky enough just to be pedaling for myself (although i was still way behind.)

we took a couple breaks where tilly ate and drank. it took us about 2 hours and we rode straight to sunday breakfast at wienerstube.

it was a fabulous morning!

new favorite thing!

So in our extra summery last two weeks we also purchased a trail-a-bike for Tilly. I was fairly sure that we were going to return it – she hated going fast on her tricycle, she's not very big for her age, blah, blah, blah – but SHE LOVES IT!

And we love it. We have the most fun riding together.

Tilly and I ride back and forth to school most days. We go for family rides to the park, pool, just downhill anywhere. Pulling an extra 60 pounds (Tilly plus the trailer) up and down our hills can be lung-burning, but it's SO WORTH IT!

(Tonight was the first night we had the extra bracket for Jeremy's bike so now he can join in the uphill fun!)
