To demonstrate how much bikier I’ve become over the last year, we biked to Soundview Playfield for a birthday party we drove to last year. One word: phew! The route looks simple and boring, but it seemed uphill the whole way.
The two-hour party wasn’t long enough for me to want to hop back on the bike for the ride home so thank goodness it was wading pool day (the smaller wading pools aren’t open every day of the week to save money and water). I came very close to falling asleep on the grass while the kids played and eventually rode them home and then took a real nap.
I’m sad that the birthday boy and his family are moving away, but I won’t miss the ride to Soundview.
