    The kid chose an after school bike ride with 'ol Dad today over a play date. That win felt pretty good. Did the 5 mile loop around Lake Balboa. Nothing is safe from the mustard. It had been cut back, and was still encroaching on the bike path right along Burbank. Damn that stuff.

    You just know she's going to make you look bad in a few years. You'll never keep up. :laugh:

    For sure. And she's super competitive, so once she feels like she's got me she'll totally put the hammer down, and will never let up.

    I am completely jealous. My daughter rides, but she doesn't have a competitive bone in her body and would never choose a bike ride with dad over a play date with friends. :( My daughter needs to ride with your daughter. They appear to be close in age.

    Her choice that day was very much the exception to the rule, hence the win. Mine is 9, and I'd be all about getting them together for a ride date. I'd like to bring mine down that way anyway for some new scenery.

    Mine will be nine in nine days. :thumbsup:

    The MtB trails down here are not kid friendly. The trails are mostly steep up and down. Parts of Whiting are really fun, and maybe Coyote Run in Aliso, (minus two clear hike-a-bike sections). If I could get my daughter to trust standing while riding instead of sitting, she would progress immeasurably.

    Wait, what's this thread about?

    Nice. So mine is strictly bike baths (somewhat in keeping with the thread) at this point. Will be at least another year before I try to get her on the dirt. I want to make sure she doesn't have a bad experience first time out and give up before she gets started, so I want her to be a stronger rider first. Maybe a bike path ride date can be in the cards once they're out of school for Summer.

    Oh, and that's a sharp bike yours has. I hope mine will grow into a 24 quickly. Her 20 is pretty portly for what it is, and I purposefully went with just one hand brake and no gears when she got this bike for Christmas so it wouldn't freak her out going to a larger size and having to figure out the new way of stopping, etc. She got the hang of the hand brake right off the bat though, so I wish I'd gotten something without the coaster brake, and with a few gears.

    I haven’t been riding much but I got to do a road ride Saturday with a couple of friends, JSD John, Pete and Biketheplanet Ryan. We did the Palos Verdes Donut loop and then rode the bike path that goes through Redondo Beach up to El Segundo and headed back since I had to go do family stuff. Slow ride, but crashed on the path by the pier, some guy was riding fast on a turn in parking lot area and he went down hard after we collided , I just got a flat front tire. I asked him if he was alright but he just called me an ******* and got up? I was like wtf, he was the one that came flying around the corner and went head on with me, he just got up and left when he saw I was with a few guys. I moved out of the path and fixed the flat. First time riding there, lots of great views!

    I asked him if he was ok and reached out to help him get up but he just called me an A hole and got back on his bike and left. He was in a hurry I guess, didn’t even apologize or anything. I thought my fork or frame would be cracked cause he hit me pretty hard but it wasn’t, I guess the front tire took all the impact

    AMGEN TDC 2019 viewing at GMR and GRR. Went up GMR, watched women come through Shack. Road over to the saddle and watched men's first KOM. Nice day for a ride.

    Tandem out to the airshow... it was a blast! Rain on the way back was a bummer, but survived without fenders.
