The last time my mom visited in Anchorage she rode 25 miles in the snow, aboard a borrowed Mukluk. And the time before that we explored historic tracks on Grindstone Island on rigid, vintage mountain bikes. This time was a little different.
Bikes are still the best way to visit Albuquerque. Several weeks ago Lael’s parents borrowed bikes and joined us for a ride in the Bosque. This time, my parents borrow bikes and ride a mix of sandy singletrack and pavement to visit friends, to Los Poblanos, and simply to enjoy some southwest sunshine. Mom rides the Cannondale Hooligan on Saturday, and the Raleigh XXIX 29er on Sunday. Dad charges around on the Pugsley. Lael runs.
