    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride

    I should mention how proud of him I am. He was born with a few defects. Spent the first month of his life in the hospital after having major surgeries at just 2 days old. He's had a few more surgeries since, another major 1 late last year with several weeks recovery in the hospital. This kid's had more hospital stays than I have bicycles. He only hear's out of one ear which really worries me when he's riding.
    Anyway he's a tough little guy and always up for a ride with papa.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride

    Love seeing all the misc. bike rides, especially vids like that one Randy. Love the gun show and slow motion action-movie jump thing too :lol: I did get thrown for a loop watching you guys go under the trestles while the camera turned and then your suddenly under a shelter. Sorry to hear your grandsons had so much hospital time, doesn't look like it's slowed him down much though :mrgreen: The videos just prove you guys know how to have fun !!!

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride (Best Day Ever)

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Yesterday we rode about 12 miles and took the Grand-Daughter along. Her longest ride.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride (Beer Run)

    Thanks Skipton. We were just out running errands. One of which was to purchase adult beverages to stock the mini fridge. None were consumed.
    Between wife's basket and my two panniers we can carry 4 6packs.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride (Dad & I Rail-To-Trail)

    My 78 year old Dad and myself rode 16 miles on our local rail-to-trail today. He only rides a couple times a year but has no problem when he does.

    Bradford pear trees in full bloom here too, they are pretty but I wouldn't have them in my yard, they stink! Don't believe me? Go smell one, that wasn't a dumpster of fish you smelled, that was a pretty tree.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride

    That's awesome that your parents are riding!!! Great pictures!
    Tomorrow we are going to try to get my 79 year old Father-in-Law on a bike
    Probably been a least 50 years since the last time, so we'll see how it goes
    I'm hoping we have as good results as you! Thanks for sharing and inspiring
