Near the beginning of this summer my dad talked me into riding bikes with him. I must say at first I wasn’t too excited about riding bikes but I figured it couldn’t hurt to get in some extra exercise. Little did I know riding a bicycle was not only going to be a blast but provided a great opportunity to spend time with my dad one on one. I was Hooked. We decided we were going to participate in the Hilly Hundred Weekend and although we knew it would be challenging shortly after taking off we were not sure what we had got ourselves into. After a lot of urging each other on, gallons of water, and several hours later we crossed the finish line. We were both proud and emotional that we were able to complete something together that most father/sons would never get to do. The Hilly Hundred is a very special memory for me that I will not soon forget. Bicycling has strengthened our relationship by providing a common interest that we are both passionate about. My only regret is that I would have started riding sooner. I Love You Dad.
