You hear 10 mile ride and think Ang and a horse… right?
No, that was our family fun for Saturday! Ang, Summer, Aiden and I trekked over to the East Peoria bike trail (I have no idea if it has a better name) and proceeded to ride 10 miles! Now, in all fairness, it was not an aggressive ride… It was 2 hours of casual riding. But when you consider that Aiden is on his tiny little bike… Well… Thats more like 20 miles to him! The last 3 miles were uphill… He nearly had a mental breakdown before it was all over. We were proud of him for getting it done.

We got on at the midway point… Rode to the North side of Morton and Interstate 74. Then turned around… And nearly made it to down to the middle of East Peoria. Ang was sure it was only a 1/4 of a mile… And after looking at the map… She was right. The ride back from EP was harsh. GPS calculated that we went up 50 meters in the span of 2 miles. Again… Not that hard on Ang and I… But it had to be brutal on a kids bike without a gear select!
