Family Bike Ride
Inspired by the fact that Paris-Nice started at the weekend, we decided to attempt our first bike ride as a family of 5 today. I made a picnic whilst Sam dug out the bike trailer and packed up the Bongo… no mean feat for the first trip of the spring!
With glorious blue skies above us, off we set to Ugine. Not usually a destination of choice, but our starting point today for a little pootle along the (snow free) bike path towards Annecy. Rowan started off on Addie’s old Islabike Rohan – she’s doing really well, but after a few hundres metres Addie became unimpressed by her moderate speed, so she was soon in the trailer with Théa.
Picnic stop at a little lake to watch a few paragliders land, feed a lone duck and eat some chocolate eggs (thanks Stuart – the kids ate at least half, honest) and then back the way we came to our trusty van.
All in all a lovely day – vive le printemps!
