Join us for a Joyride!

We are pleased to announce our Sunday Joyride! Every Sunday at 2 p.m. we'll strike out on our bikes and go for a nice, slow bike ride. We'll stop somewhere for some food and drinks and head back. It's open to everyone. We'll announce a meetup time here on the blog, and before we head out we'll all decide on a destination. This Sunday we'll meet at the Again Street Park.

We went on a couple of Joyrides over the last couple weeks just to see if it was right for us and our boy, who comes with us. Our friend Kyle also helped us test out our rides. For this ride he had some speakers rigged up to his bike, and we jammed to Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and Daft Punk during the ride.

We bring our son in an on-bike seat. He loves it.

 Here's what I look like when I'm en route. Evidently I love to wear horizontal stripes on weekends.

Last Sunday it was supposed to rain so we did our ride on Saturday. It was terribly crowded downtown. It was so gorgeous we wanted to be sure to get a table outside. Our first choice was Flat Branch, but the patio was packed. There wasn't even enough room on the bike racks for our rides.

So then we went to Bengals, but as you can see the patio was packed there, too. Packed with douchebags. The kinds of kids who photobomb ladies taking pictures of their kids. So we went to Shakespeare's and had a great time.
 We usually turn our boy loose to play. This he loves. 

Then we head back the way we came. We continue to jam to the music, and our son falls asleep. 
Dismounting a bike with a child seat on it is sometimes an art. 

I hope you'll join us for our ride. We have a great time, and we would love to meet you, our loyal readers, in real life.
