We decided to take advantage of the three day Labor Day weekend to give Ruth a chance to get some more road time on her own bike in. After considering the options, we figured and out-and-back to the base of Dumbarton Bridge would be a good option.
The ride itself was pretty uneventful. Ruth did us proud in maintaining road position and following directions. She kept her energy up, although she did have a bit of trouble climbing the short hill out of the bay. She ended up walking the last third, but quickly recovered to ride the rest of the way home.
It’ll still be a while before she can ride her own bike on a tour, but I’m pleased that she can keep up the attention and energy for a twelve mile ride.
