Mountain Biking…

Early on Sunday morning Richard and our three older children set off for a town called Walkerville, which is over an hour away. They were taking part in a 9.5 km mountain bike race. There was great excitement and they rode so well through the extremely muddy landscape. The mist was so thick when they arrived that the start time had to be moved back half and hour. Caiden arrived at the finish amongst the top 10 and the girls finished in the top 15! They all received medals and can’t wait for their next race:) I am so happy they have found a sport they all enjoy and I will soon be joining them too:) (I need to get fit first…) I really love the last photo in this post, it was taken by Richard, they all look like warriors emerging from out of the mist after battle…

    So great to see them taking part in this kind of thing. It’s on my “to do” list to do a cycle race with the kids some time this year 🙂

    I love that last photo of them coming out of the fog. You’re right; they do look like warriors. Congrats on the job well done!

    A fabulous Mother’s Day gift.

    That last photo is cool with the mist.

    My family has suddenly become bike lovers. My brother will be doing a 200 mile race in a month. My husband and son will be in a 100 mile race at near the same time. And my son-in-law is a MONSTER rider – he rides long races, cross country races – all kinds. So they all have special clothes and numbers of helmets, and they’re always working out. Me? I think I still have a bike hanging in the garage. I’d rather read, really.
