My son and his long-time girlfriend Toni are currently travelling though the US, and some of their things are downstairs – including their shiny new bicycles. My husband bought some sneakers recently and took my son’s bike out, so I decided to take the other one. It’s been a while. I remember cycling alongside my kids when they were off to school at a young age, or weekend trips to Rottnest Island to seek out Qokkas. My grandson loves his pedal bike too, so it’s become a family affair!
It’s so important to keep active at this age, whether it’s daily walks with friends in the morning, or just a 40 minute bike ride around your neighbourhood. I’ve battled bursitis and on and off heel pain, but I feel like i’m in a good place now, and every bike ride is doing me more good.
