My dad and i rode 4 hours today at ARCADIA. This was his first time on a real trail, he did not have an appropriate bike but, surprisingly it held up. I needed to go slow for him but it was not a problem. riding with my dad was great. check out some of these pics:

heading out



Messing around in the parking lot



Why not...



easy trail at the start of our ride, eventually it splits and gets really rocky.



some air





relax for a bit



on the way back, wheelys at 25mph...too much fun.



dad was pretty exhausted

Awesome! I was figuring this was a post from a Dad. Good work outta you turning the deal around. Dads really appreciate that kind of thing, trust me. Just don't beat him up too bad out on the trail!

Hehehe, nice of you to keep the old man huffing/puffing. Whip him into shape! :thumbsup:

It makes me sad to see all those silly prescription drug commercials on TV when if more parents did this sort of thing with their kids they wouldn't need to pop so many pills! Take care of your pops and enjoy your time together. Money, career, toys, etc... doesn't even begin to measure up to quality time like this.

You're a good son. Your dad must be proud of you being able to ride like that. Make the most of your time together. When you're older, you'll have good memories of these times.

Nice. I can't wait to be able to take my son to Arcadia. HE's two...but kudos to your dad for riding there w that old skool rig. He's lucky that he's got a son that appreciates him enough to include him in his fun. Kudos to you for hanging out w your dad. I hope he gets the bug and never stops riding now.

Hey...that is so nice. I figured as well it would be a post from your father. That is so great! I hope when my little guy gets your age he still has time to go biking with his Dad! Enjoy every second with your father! Time has a way of catching up sometimes and you don't want to look back with a whole bunch of should have's. jd
