a whole new world of transportation | Crazy For Trying

I feel a change in the air on how I approach transportation with the girls around the neighbourhood.

BICYCLE.

Maja’s been riding a two-wheeler for some time and Maddy learned (finally!) last fall.

I realized this spring that with two out of three kids able to transport themselves places… I could get Pips on the bike seat and we could get places much much much quicker. Much.

What did it for me was when Maddy & Maja rode their bikes from our house all the way to the Penn Museum and home again. A total of nearly 3 miles.

I trailed behind them pushing Pips in the stroller… and it took us almost 30 min. to get there. On bike it would have taken us 10 min. (optimistically).

This weekend I finally re-mounted the bike seat onto my bike and took Pips for a test run up and down the alley — much to the amusement of my neighbours, I’m sure. Then we went around the block… and she LOVED it.

Big surprise.

We then did a real outing this past Saturday with Pips in the bike seat and Maddy on her bike all the way to campus to drop Maddy off at a friend’s house for a sleepover.

To take our transition to biking one step further, on Sunday morning Maja and I rode our bikes to drop Pippa off at a playdate and Maja rode on the street. She insisted. I figured it was ok given that it was 10am on a Sunday morning…

I have to admit, though, my bike hasn’t seen any love in the past few years and while the brakes work… they make me nervous. Even more nervous when I have an extra 30lb human riding along on the back of the bike.

My bike is going in to the shop today to get a tune up.

And then, watch out West Philly — we’re going to hit the streets!

    Great! A little daring, maybe, but nonetheless GREAT!
