Once weekend a year water is let out of the dam into the river and makes a huge rooster tail. We decided we would ride our bikes down to see it (driving could take hours with all of the traffic…and you have to pay for parking). We’ve done this once before, but the boys were little and we pulled them in the trailer. This year, as they are much more grown up, we thought they could ride themselves. We drove part way to relieve some of the mileage and rode ourselves down. It was a beautiful day and we had a perfect ride down the Greenbelt.
We got sprayed by the water once we made it down, but it was such an amazing site and felt great after riding for ten miles on the blacktop.
The kids got in about 20 miles ( the furthest they’ve been yet ) and they were troopers.
