Nothing left to accomplish in St. Louis, we are off to NYC.
Carter had lost interest in his “big boy” bicycle. It was too tricky to pedal up the hill on our street. I decided he was giving up on too many things that were too tricky, so I took him to a big, open, flat parking lot. He had a blast! Then I got a phone call whil he was waiting for a push. Rather than continue to wait, he decided to figure out his own way to start all by himself. This is the second time he had ever done it. I am so proud!
Update 9/24/2008 – Results are posted here and I am recognized as completing my first century here. My official average speed was 13.09mph. I forgot to clock back in before lunch, so it would have been more like 13.85mph. I signed up for the ride the rivers century and I think I can do a lot better by not stopping as long, now that I have more confidence.
