Desert Girl's Mountain Biking Adventure
She's gotten a lot better keeping her balance and seems pretty comfortable on her bike.
So we decided to give her a little challenge at an off-roading place. Desert Boy was eager to take the lead.
He showed us last year at Sacramento Pass Rec Area that he has a talent for mountain bike riding.
Then it was Desert Girl's turn. I wasn't so sure how well she would do. And I was quite aware that I had no bandaids with me. This could turn out really ugly. I held my breath as she started down the hill.
She started gaining speed and going over bumps. Her front wheel wobbled, but she hung on tight, Barbie basket leading the way.
And she stayed on!
And she kept going. She didn't quite make it up the hill, but she was pleased as peaches that she made it down the hill. She even did it again.
I think we've got another future mountain biker.
