Well, in truth it’s just one wheel on a tag-along. He’s gone from a seat to a saddle and lost 4 kg in weight at the same time. Also, to aid with those Lancashire hills, he’s now got gears! The Weehoo was great, especially for when we rode across France but now he’s bigger the Piccolo should be a lot easier. He can get on and off without help for example.
We hope to go for our first micro-tour, complete with tent, in October when Mrs W is away visiting a friend. To make it more fun I’ve fitted a cycle computer with a rear wheel sensor so Junior can know how fast he’s going and how far he’s gone. The hope is that this has the same motivating effect that his step counter does on a family walk. Let’s hope too that I can maintain the fitness I built for, and on, my Welsh C2C – I think I’ll need it!
