Off to Wynyard tomorrow with daughter number 1 for our first daughter and dad cycle ride. Going to have a ride along the old railway line. Not sure who is the most excited 😆 . Will try to remember to take some pictures.
Had a good trip to Wynyard this morning with daughter #1 (KP). KP has never been the most confident of cyclists but she has been using her bike more this year. This was going to be her first off road trip.

We made our way along the old railway line to the bridge that goes over the A689, where we stopped for refreshments.

As we set off on the return journey KP was getting more confident, “I like going fast dad” she shouted. Unfortunately 2 cyclists came into view the other way and she grabbed a big handful of front brake. The front wheel washed from under her on the gravel and down she went 🙁 . Fortunately there wasn’t too much damage, just a bit of gravel rash on her arm.
It took a few minutes to get her ready to go again but she did well on the return leg, though this might have been helped by the promise of ice cream.
Overall a really fun morning apart from the crash.
