Another Pleasant Ride



After a lovely ride in the brisk but gloriously sunny weather (34 degrees,) we took off for our granddaughter's 2nd birthday party. She is now the proud possessor of a glider that we hope will enable her to learn to ride a bike without having to go through the training wheel stage. Of course, she will need better weather, but the wait for spring will only make it more likely that she will be old enough to handle the bike and catch on to gliding, and then riding, quickly.

I was at the Smithsonian this weekend and saw an early model bicycle - but it's really a glider. I love that the seat is designed like a horse saddle.
