Guess What?!

. . . May is National Bike Month!  How cool is that?!

And, who's to say that it cannot also be National Trike Month?!  
Afterall, they both run on pedal-power.

This coming work week (May 14th - May 18th) is also National Bike to Work Week, with special focus on May 18th.  Bike to School Day was this past week (May 9th), but I didn't even learn about this month-long wheeled celebration until yesterday . . . be gentle with me, all you scholars.

I'd love to hear from any of y'all who ride bikes (or, bless my soul, even trikes!).  Quads, even.
If you pedal a wheeled contraption that propels you forward based on your energy output, I'd love to know about it.

Thanks for reading; y'all be blessed,

p.s. - Out of the 568 fitness minutes I've done (so far) this week, 319 minutes have been while triking.
(212 of those triking minutes have been purely for exercise; 107 of those minutes have been for transportation).


  1. Thursday was bike to work day in our area. Wish I could've done it, but with the girls it's not feasible.

    I did go for a bike ride this morning though. Was good to get out.

  2. Good for you, Christine! I'm guessing your youngest girl might be too young, even for a trike? What about your oldest girl? Can she pedal yet?

  3. Audrey has a bike with training wheels. It was gifted to us awhile ago. She's learning how to pedal. I think she could do a trike if she had patience and access. We get her on the bike once every couple weeks. She gives up so quickly that they are short sessions. But she is getting the hang of peddaling it herself.
