We’re planning on a one-week tour in Washington this summer, which means we need to start getting some saddle time in. We’ve purchased a tandem for Ruth to ride with Anne. Max will ride in the Hase with me this time.
Without being creative, or really putting too much effort into it, we figured we’d do our basic Mission loop. It has a bit of climbing as it circles around Fremont and Newark.
We had hoped to beat the rain, but were only partially successful. We didn’t bring much rain gear, though we did have jackets for the kids. We didn’t bring the Green Torpedo, so Max got some road splash from my rear wheel. He took it pretty well, using a toy laptop as a shield for at least part of it.
We’ll need to do more training, and re-figure out how to carry all of our gear, before August.
