In an effort to get away, I took the kids out to bike on Grant’s Trail. It was a bit cold outside, so Sonora was quite bundled up.
Corvin and I unicycled and he did a great job!
And as a treat, we had hot chocolate out of the thermos when we finished our ride! A great evening with exercise and being together!
Sonora dressed up as a very creepy clown for the Avery Fall festival. But it was perfect for the haunted house!
Danelle and Sonora spent a day at Six Flags.
And Corvin is getting much better at his unicycle. He went on a 4 mile ride with me. So we had to stop for Ice Cream!
The summer is starting and I’m trying to get in lots of unicycle miles. I asked Corvin if he wanted to go with me, but he declined. I asked Sonora and to my surprise, she said yes. So we packed a bag for water and headed to the gas station. With gas, Gatorade, and some snacks, we headed out. I’ve been wanting to explore the Earth City Levee trail for some time. The trail in St. Charles Missouri across from Frontier Park.
The trail is about 3 miles long and continues north, but we didn’t follow it that direction. I brought 2 unicycles with me for this ride, my new 36″ and my ole’ reliable 29″. This was my first lengthy ride on the 36 and it was certainly difficult, but I managed.
Flooding earlier in the year ate away at the trail and caused a detour.
Here is the other side of that detour. I’m glad we didn’t ignore the sign and keep going, it would have been a long and dangerous fall to the river!
After our ride on this trail, Sonora and I ate some snacks while I drove to the Katy Trail. Here, we continued our ride for about 7 ish more miles for an nice out and back ride. On this one, I took the 29 as I was getting tired. We ended up at the lowest point of the Katy Trail during our ride!
Sonora was a trooper for the day. We rode over 11 miles, a personal best for me on the unicycle!
I’m trying to get my kids excited about uni-cycling. Its easy to see somebody do it, but much harder to do it yourself. They have seen me do it tons, but I’m now trying to get them to do it. This means that I have to be out there with them to make it happen.
Helping both kids at the same time! And here is what they look like in motion!
