This past summer, I enticed Gordon and Ellis with a sno-cone if they rode to the sno-shack with me. They were excited to go, but they wanted a cold drink instead. I mainly just wanted to get out of the house and feel my muscles working. I agreed to the drink. The round trip from our house to the store (if you go the back way) is 8.6 miles and very hilly. The ride home is nearly all uphill.
They really struggled going uphill. We had to stop several times and those cute boys walked their bikes about halfway home.
Yesterday, I was itching to get out and ride. Gordon was itching to spend his money at the store. =) He said to me, "I will ride my bike to the store with you." Gordon is quite the couch potato and if he is going to ask for me to exercise with him, the answer is a resounding yes! I figured it would be something similar to the ride we went on this summer.
Gordon was a Rock Star! He rode the whole way. We stopped for a drink about halfway there and halfway home. He rode all the hills and had such a positive attitude. It was an awesome ride!
