Training bikers!

These three have been training like crazy for the upcoming Wild West Century Bike Ride. This will be our dad's 3rd year to participate. And his first year without Jon- you will be missed!! :(

So our dad decided this year was the girls year to ride. They will ride 10 miles! (Easy for him, he has riden the 65 mile, and the 100 mile.) Its going to be a fun ride for the girls.

In this picture, last Saturday they went for an 8 mile ride. We were shocked when the girls were still full of energy. There were some complaints later that day of sore thighs, but other than that- our girls are bike warriors! We have practiced a bit, all 6 Stricklands went on a five mile ride too a few weeks ago.
We love to ride, and all ride at least twice a week for a least a mile. Its a great way to enjoy eachother and get some exercise!
Will post pics of the bike ride on Saturday!

oh How exciting. I wish I liked bike riding... I am terrified of bicycles.. isn't that crazy. I can ride a motorcycle like nobody's business but not a bicycle. It seems so much easier but nope not me.

That is so much fun for the girls I am sure. To be so involved with what is huge to mommy and daddy. Y'all are amazing parents.

love y'all.
