Triplet training

Filed under: Family Adventure — ttoshi @ 6:05 am

The kids have really been enjoying the triplet bike, and we have been riding it weekly. I’ve been training for a brevet series (200k, 300k, 400k and 600k rides), and one of my best ways is to take the kids out for a nice bike ride on the triplet.

We really love GPC club rides because there are a bunch of riders for the kids to interact with and we have fun trying to keep up with “our team”.

On March 11th, we tackled our most challenging hill on the triplet and we rode from El Cerrito del Norte BART to San Pablo Dam Rd. up Wildcat Canyon (tough!) and back down to the start. The actual ride started in Berkeley, so it was actually good that we got a head start and the rest of the club caught up to us as we were resting at Inspiration Point in Tilden park.

The kids had a great time and my legs had plenty of training on the hills!

Thanks to Ken Karda for the image!
