Bike for your life

I rode my bike to Robinette's.  Chris bladed.  Cam sat there and enjoyed the scenery.  Need I say more?  It was HARD.  My arms were sweating.  Camden learned (about 3/4 the way up 200 north) how to shift my gears to increase resistance, that caused a problem.  I could hardly get up the hill in the first place!

I kept thinking, "I am going to stop and rest at the end of this block" "I am going to stop and rest when we get to the church", but for the most part we just kept trucking along.  We stopped once to cross 200 North and then we walked up the last leg of the journey, up Oakmont Drive.

We did it.  And we'll probably never do it again, but thank you Robinette's for being a worthy end-goal!  And thanks for letting us hangout with you all night.

4.6 Miles, uphill.  Took us probably about an hour.  We are professionals (NOT).

Oh yeah, how could I forget the ride home?  10:00pm.  Straight downhill.  Very windy.  Raining sometimes.  Camden was OUT.  His head was bobbing all over the place.  It was really sad.  When I got off the bike, everywhere hurt because I was trying to hold Cam's body up with my left arm and hold his head back with my chin and not DIE in the wind.  Bleh.

OMG! I can't believe you did that and that Cam fell asleep on the bike ride. That's insane!
