My youngest daughter is training to do the Seattle to Portland Bike  ride on the Tandem with me July 17-18th, 2010.   She is a great tennis player but needs work to be a great bike rider.

She also needed biking gear – shorts, shirt, gloves, socks, shoes  and a woman’s bike saddle ( all but the saddle are fuchsia pink!!!)

Some gals just gotta look great for the ride…..

So last Saturday I drove with the bike on top of the car over to take her out for a training ride.

We pedaled the Centennial Trail starting in Spokane, Washington and riding to Coeur d’ alene, Idaho.

My good biking partner from last year, Brad,  joined us for the excursion.

It was slow going up the Spokane River to Idaho as a stiff, chilly head wind make it a rough go but of course the tail wind nearly blew us directly home!

6 Hours and 65 miles – Now that is getting off to a pretty good start!

now if we can just find a way out

    I look bug eyed in the first picture. But it was a good ride other than the dog

    It was a great ride and I could surely feel you pedaling faster when the dog was coming at us – good thing there was a fence.

    Keep practicing and I do not think you look anything but beautiful.
