Alex is with us for a week...
...between New York
We manage to get in a couple of bike rides.
Our bikes are still with UPS
So she gets to ride Tom's big ol' bicycle.
Down the Monon Trail...
Visiting Al's friend, Annie.
Braving 86th Street to get to the bike shop.
Al does pretty well on Tom's "Old Goat"
so I treat her to lunch at Trader's Point Creamery -
Grass fed dairy farm at the edge of Zionsville.
Great yogurt parfait!
And it comes from happy cows.
Al spends her weekend camping out with friends...
...and exploring The Land.
Then returns home for one last bike ride with Mom.
on real bikes now.
We pass fellow bikers...
Little do they know these two little ladies have just biked all the way across the country.
It's hard to believe just two short weeks ago we were facing the mountains of Vermont.
Now we face the flats of Indiana on a simple ride to Pendleton for lunch.
The Cabbage Rose Eatery.
We love the little Mom and Pop cafes!
- Mom, you're faster in Indiana than you were on The Bike Ride.
- Al, I'm well-rested and well-fed.
It makes all the difference!
Our ride is too short.
It's time for Al to return to Occidental.
Good-bye from friend Annie.
One last hug from brother TJ.
And she's off for her last year of college.
And who knows where she'll go from there?
