This is most likely the last year I’ll be able to shuttle two kids on the Xtracycle. (sniff sniff) I don’t know what Tim has been feeding them, but the wee ones have grown. They are simply getting too dang big to shuttle around.
And now they have friends.
And it’s not just their size, it’s their energy. They’re all squirmy and excited and silly. And they laugh and joke and eat lollipops. And sometimes they bonk each other with their helmets.
I have to say, I’ll miss this era. There’s nothing quite like hauling squealing kids on a bike.
But I know my Xtracycle kid-shuttle days are coming to a close.
And the kids must ride their own bikes to soccer practice.
(I promise to keep hauling the balls and cones until they are big enough for their own cargo bikes)

As we’re wrapping up Summer 2010 (aside from 1980, the worst summer in 5 decades) and looking ahead to Fall, we still can’t stop talking about our terrible weather. Where did our glorious Northwest September go? (usually our favorite month of the year).
Despite the rain and clouds, we still enjoyed many fun times on the bike with family and friends. Check out the video we put together of Car Free Days summer riding.
When we watch the video we realize, it wasn’t all bad.
How about you? Tell us about your summer riding.
