Hey Congrats...Think we are living parallel lives. My son arrived 6 weeks ago. Funny we have the same appreciation for the time out there riding now.

Congrats to you as well, ours is just over 5 months now... I'm sure many people have told you "it gets easier", well it actually does in some ways even from that early stage to now, sleep is way better than it was a few months ago! Enjoy the ride.

Every time when I think about NOT riding, I have to think about what you told me all those years ago - If you want to improve your riding, you need to ride as often as possible and speed does not really matter. Just get the miles in and the rest will follow.

You could put anything in there; riding, lifting, playing the guitar, learning a language, whatever, consistency is huge in getting good at something.

That's why I'm always trying to be a smart-ass on here.

That is an awesome idea. Engraining proper patterns. Nice one. Really nice one.

“I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like

It's got a basket, a bell that rings

And things to make it look good

I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it” - Syd Barrett

Still riding, still alive. At the end of the day it's all that really matters...
