No, the Redline is mine. But I let Eli sit on it for the photo.
Once a week, I try to ride my BMX bike up to the school close by to run the stairs. It's a sure-fire way to get onto the little bike, and it's a great way to warm up for the stairs...and I can wear normal running shoes. Tonight, I brought the little guy with me. We have been riding around the neighborhood a bit lately, and tonight he rode his BMX bike, too.
After I ran stairs for a few minutes, we lined up in the empty parking lot to do some sprints from a dead stop. Sound familiar to any of my ancient friends? He kept asking me why I was so fast. I asked him if he ever paid attention when I bragged about myself. I think he finally grasped that I was not slow back in the dark ages. Then I showed him how to do a proper start. The old crew would have been proud of him.
A little earlier tonight, I put new bar tape on Tyson's road bike. He is threatening to do the Tuesday night crit tomorrow night.
These things make me proud.
