Riding Bikes

A few times a week Jordan, Trevor and I go riding our bikes around town. There are several interesting aspects to our rides. It's not everyday that 1 gringo and 2 little gringos pass by on bicycles in Chavin. We get a lot of looks and the boys get a lot of comments like "Oh, how cute!"

These short journeys allow us to see new areas of town and the surrounding communities. Another benefit is that we have met many people on our treks that we wouldn't have met otherwise. I usually end up stopping to talk to people while the boys practice bike tricks in the background.

The boys really look forward to our rides and ask me to go just about everyday. Truth is I enjoy our time together as much as, if not more, than they do. I told them on our last long ride how cool it was to go exploring with them. During that ride Jordan decided to name us "The Roadrunners."

Everytime we have to ride up a hill Trevor asks me if they make kid bikes with gears. They're a little jealous that I can change gears and climb (ever so slightly) easier. But we're not too proud to walk our bike up the hill if it's too steep. I told them they're going to have huge leg muscles if we keep it up. Jordan said, "Yeah, and huge lungs too."

This reminds me of the times that you and Todd would ride your bikes with me while I ran. It was an adventure because we did it at 3 or 4 a.m., we never knew what we might see, and we did it together (at least that's what I think). I would wake you guys up when I got home from work. You guys always seemed to think it was so cool. It is unexplainably blessing to hear how God is giving you guys the joy and wonder of one another.

Blessings in everything,
