No, focus has shifted a bit lately. Not riding bikes very much at all, and when we do its only kids bikes.

Been playing lots of music to my son to see what he likes best. Seems like 'Reign in blood' so far (I'm not a bogan just have masses of random music) :blush:

I'm waiting for summer for skids with the kids.
Chris needs to grow about 10-20mm more to fit the half bike better(hoping in the next few months), I hope he likes it as much as the TT seat.

The kids got Rock Band game and instrument set for xmas. My 6 year old asked for a Deep Purple CD for his birthday and my 10 yr old stole my sister's Iron Maiden cds. My 4 year old does great at the chorus for 'I think I'm Paranoid'.

Went and bought a trailer bike today. First ride up around Hagley Park with the kids, then stopped off at Xocolatl for a coffee on the way home. All went pretty well, lots of talking from Sarah on the back. Looking at that photo, might need to tweak the seat angle a bit. Good resistance training!

We did the bikes (trike too) in the sw and off to Twin streams again. This time we did the part from Border road to Henderson Park.
It’s the best bit :thumbsup:
Had a really good time and the boys loved it. Youngest really appreciates getting out and doing physical stuff.
We’re looking for a bike for him so he won’t have to ride so slowly on the trike.
Oldest rode off the seat today – which is a big step for him. Hopefully what I’ve been telling him about riding off the seat giving more power up hills will sink in and be worked on.
Weather – sunny, warm (for Winter) and calm = perfect :D

Great to see so many trailer bikes out! :thumbsup:

Sadly, we're too big for ours now... Still, we have some fantastic memories... :love:

Not expecting to emulate your stirling feats Sifter, but might try to do some events with Sarah on the back. She's quite proud of her "joined bike".
