We also purchased a roof-mounted Thule rack for our car and all the components for carrying the bikes (plus locks and fairing). It was kinda complicated but fun to put on, and it's super easy to use now that it's all set up. I was worried I wouldn't be able to lift my bike on all by myself but it was no problem.
I'm really excited for him! I am hoping to get a bike for myself soon so I can go for longer rides with him and with the local cycling group too- he's going to start doing that.He had an exciting first ride yesterday- he got a flat AND fell over when he couldn't get out of his pedals. :D I know it happens to everyone, but he felt pretty embarrassed (and got a nasty bruise on his hip!) but he's already gaining some experience.
Anyway, total miles run last week: 30 miles!
PLUS 13 miles bike, and I think 1000 m swim (I didn't log one of my swims, so I'm just guessing it was 500)
Coming up this week: MY BIRTHDAY!!!
