    6.6 miles with my 4.5-year-old:

    Four stops on the way - one for an ice cream, one for a packet of crisps, and two for water, but I'm still delighted with his achievement at this young age.

    Mind my ugly mug but both my kids after our 35k sponsored ride for our local children's Hospice. Taylor managed to raise nearly 100 pound.

    I also don't think the youngest turned the tag along pedals once.

    Bit of poor health on my part means we haven't been out as much as I'd like but today I thought MTFU and wanted to make the most of the weather whilst it's the school hols.
    We decided to go to Gisburn forest trails and take on the blue ( easy route ), it's only a 45min drive from ours but well worth a visit if you can get to it.
    Next stage for the boy as he's only been used to going along the canal and to local parks.

    The blue route is about 5.5 miles and has a number of tight chicanes, hills and more importantly for Callum some great puddles!

    He did really well and other than one moment ( in the pics ) he enjoyed it. Finished it off in true cycling style with coffee and cake! Ignore the van, it's work in progress.

    Another EACH (East Anglian Children's Hospice) charity ride around Snetterton with some fireworks in the evening to boot. Bit chilly but we managed a few laps! Emily was having such a good time she did another two laps on her own when her brother had had enough!
    Blimin heck just noticed I've got two snetterton visits on the same cc page, we don't live here honest!

    My 6 year old has finally grown big enough for his first bike with gears.
    His comment was that it was so fast.

    Well, bizarrely, he did get paid to race in that. Only three entries in the Juniors race, and he was third. Prize was a fiver. (This was his first cyclo-cross race. First bike race ever come to that.)

    Will he be going back is the question? Get ready to stand in some cold fields constantly worrying whilst they arevput of sight. My lad has raced since he was 6 and loves it. Costs me a fortune mind

    He absolutely loved it and will be doing more. (And I was surprised at quite how long they were out of sight for.)
