bike ride

Tonite during dinner our son Becket was sharing with us about the awesome bike ride he and his buddy took after school today.

He then shared how strong the wind from the cars were when they drove past him as they rode their bikes.

“Where were you riding?” we asked.

“On the bike path from the Roastery to City Zoo.” he replied.

Knowing that there is not a bike path on that route the question was posed: “What bike path?”

“The bike path…” he answered.

“On the freeway?” we asked.

“Next to the freeway.” answered our 9 year old bike rider.

After a little clarification it was made clear that he was riding his bike on the highway shoulder.

Sometimes I just feel better not knowing what is really going on.
