Move Over, Lance

Was it sheer coincidence that on the last day of the Tour de France Kate took possession of her new Big Girl bike?

Well, it’s true. Yesterday, with the help of Mark’s fervid encouragement and a set of training wheels, Kate rode about one-twentieth of a mile and .5 vertical feet.The sidewalk by our house wasn’t lined with spectators waving flags and shaking noisemakers, though our neighbor Tom was out doing some gardening.

Really, it’s only a matter of time before she develops her following.

In the meantime Mark is working to put together a customized training regimen for her, and has equipped her with all the latest protein goos and energy bars, not to mention state-of-the-art heart monitors and GPS systems.

We’re looking forward to being so proud of her.

Sponsorship, anyone?
