This is a video of my boy balancing on his Strider bike.  He only had it for about two weeks at that time and was 3.5 years old.

Looking for something to do with the kids over the school holidays? Why come join us in the first Myrtleford Bike Muster and enjoy some time together cycling the Murry to Mountains Rail Trail. Relaxed social riding over the weekend of 30 Sept - 2 Oct for the whole family. Visit the website for more information and to register

The "triple decker", our custom kid carrying solution. We get alot further now without carting a trailer.

Another milestone.
Picked her up from school last night, and realised my bag was lighter than hers, so offered to swap.  She said she looked like a real grown-up cyclist now and then asked "Daddy, can I ride all the way home?" *yay!*
So, we took it very slowly, and under control.  Footpaths she normally walks until we got to the quiet streets, and then she took to the road (for the second time ever - the first down the beach at Christmas).
Very. Proud. Dad.

Hi! I am organizing a family fun ride along beach rd on the 7th of May. We are supporting the national breast cancer foundation, so all the gils will be very happy as everyone can come as PINK as they can get! Thought it might be good to tell you guys as you're all in for easy, slow cycling with kids. We are going from playground to playground with enough stops for everyone ;-) have a look at the events, I have posted the event there. Cheers Emmy
