Back on the Bike – with iBert

I am no longer talking about 6 hour rides, more like 15-30 minutes so far. You gotta start somewhere.

We recently purchased the iBert Safe-T-Seat so that we all can go for some rides together now that the weather will be gradually cooling off in the south.

The biggest challenge of this entire adventure was getting Griffin comfortable sitting in the little seat. We ended up putting a stuffed animal (bunny) with Griffin’s helmet on the seat to show him what it would be like. It worked! Getting the helmet on was a bit more work but before long he was pointing out every car, truck, plane, and dog. I think he was lovin it and so was I.

Here are a couple pics from our ride. Ibert review coming soon.

    Hey David,

    Great site! I’m subscribing to your blog so you can be a constant thorn in my fat side. My latest fall out of the hamster wheel has lasted almost five months. Time to pull the old whiskers out of the food bowl and hop back on. Maybe there’s time to catch the last sprint tri of the season.

    Hope to see you around the lake one morning.

    Let us know your latest 20oz/hr hydration results. Does forcing H2O for three hours help?

    Hey Aaron – The beauty of life is that every day provides another opportunity to get back on that “wheel”. Find a routine that works for you and get to it! 🙂

    Forcing water help? Yes, but when it is 100 deg outside, I still had trouble getting enough in me. More experimenting is required. I will keep you updated.
