Christmas Family Ride

I had the great pleasure of taking my nephew for a ride this morning on his new Trek road bike. He is new to road cycling and it was lovely to have company, for a change, particularly family. What started out as a superb, clear ride up Route 24 turned quickly to a very wet end indeed, but a good test for both our rim brakes! As always, fantastic to be out in the fresh air and sharing it with someone new to the sport and enthusiastic to clock up the miles. Interestingly, he commented on how much better he felt for the ride and he can now understand why I go out so much, in all weathers to continue my road to recovery. Hopefully we will get out again before the holidays end, but for today, this was the perfect, festive ride.
