My boy and I did at 17.2 mile bike ride along the C&O canal today. He is just about to turn 7 years old. He toughed it out the whole way on a single speed. I’m so proud of him.
There are many snakes on that path. We were talking about the chances of running over a snake, and I had at first discounted the chances until he ran over a 2-3 foot long black snake while I was talking. He saw a copper head along the trail later that day and another black snake. so crazy!
