This is Max and I am newest member
of the bike club. I am writing this story because my dad asked me.
The day we went on our bike ride was
Sunday August 7, 2005. The weather was very nice it was 80-90
degrees. And it was pretty dry out. We had to drink a lot and we brought
some food to eat while we rode.
To start off our bike ride, we had
to try to fit me on my dadís old bike. His old bike was big so we had to
lower the seat a lot to almost as low as it can go. Before we did that we
had to put air in all the tires.
We started our ride around 12:30,
and ended from 2:45-3:00. The ride was hard because there were so many
hills! On the bike ride we went to Kinkoís to see my mom. We sat at the
table she was working at but she didnít see us so when she turned around,
she was kind of surprised. It was funny.
We went about 13.5 miles. My dad
said if there werenít any hills we would have gone about 20 miles, maybe
The whole time my dad kept saying we
could get ice cream after, but we never did. That made me kind of mad.
During our bike ride we went to
Mount Avon Cemetery. We saw a cool statue in the middle of it and we took
pictures of the statue and us. We also read some of the gravestones.
The bike ride was fun but hard. My
dad did the bike ride with ease, but I had some trouble. After the bike
ride my legs were a little soar but after I relaxed for a little bit they
The bike ride was fun and I hope to
go on another one. I still wish I had the ice cream.
Thank you Max for writing this
week's story. You are only the second member to compose a story
after one of our rides. Following are the pictures I took before the
ride and during. I highly recommend all bike club members take the
opportunity and write at least one story. Just pick your ride and
let me know ahead of time so we don't both do a story that week.
Don't worry, I don't expect to get many offers so I will just continue to
carry the load.
