I loved writing my post yesterday about my bike vacation down to Dana Point, but I’ll tell you now it was incomplete.
Over Facebook, I was following Joe Linton’s Pacific Coast Highway bike tour daily the past week, but I didn’t want to mention it because I won’t share family matters until they made public.
He posted about his ride on Streetsblog LA a few hours after I published mine, but I wanted to give him credit for helping inspire us to take our trip.
We had been doing everything to prepare ourselves for a bike vacation other than committing to a date.
CV Jr. has never complained about sitting in her bike seat…or gone potty.
When I saw that Joe was taking his daughter of a similar age on a week’s trip down some of our state’s prettiest coastline, I knew the least we could do was take a day off enjoying modest accommodations.
I’m so thankful that Joe shared his journey with us because stories like these start a chain reaction of interest.
Being a parent is a trial and error process, so even investing a day’s worth of time for family riding can sound daunting.
But once you commit, you find that kids love being on a bike.
Didn’t you feel the same way once?
