Tues 6.23Started the day by riding with my 4th-grade nephew over to his school. I was very pleased to see a lineup of bikes in the rack.
After I picked him up at 1230 (short days the last week of school) we rode our bikes all the way to Wendy's. Possibly the first time he's ever gotten anywhere besides school without a car or an airplane. Fortuitously, the best of all possible things happened - one of his buddies passed by in a car, and called out "Hi John" in a sort of "what are you doing - how come you get to do that?" tone of voice.
Rode back to the house. Not a big ride for me, but new horizons for the nephew.
