I'm thinking that if we're going to make this a habit, my church attire is going to become markedly more casual. Wearing a dress while biking makes the slightest breeze a possible source of Too Much Information. :-)
In other bike-related news, the children and I have been taking cycling lessons. Coming from a culture where we drive everywhere (translation: little bike experience), added to a completely new set of traffic rules, plus the left side of the road, plus lots of rotaries ("roundabouts"), plus the fact that Cambridge is decidedly not laid out like a grid, equals "we need professional help."
So we're taking private family lessons, and next week the older two will take four mornings' worth of Bikeability classes, free to us, sponsored by the City and taught by OutSpoken, the same company providing the private lessons.
For those homeschooling friends following along at home, I would say that we are in the late grammar stage of cycling. Lots of drills. Our instructor, Damian, is quite patient with us. Today he decided we had all passed Level 1. Yippee!
But after two hours of cycling practice? Some of us just run out of gas.
