Some weeks ago hubby bought a bicycle trailer so that the boys can come with us when we go cycling. Though C can already ride a bike, he can’t go for long rides. D can’t even ride one with those support wheels. I think we need to spend more time with him on this one. teehee!
The trailer is also a convenient for putting stuff like water bottles, soccer ball and whatnots. All luggage will do! 😀
So we’ve been cycling every Saturday. We would sometime go on a bike tour with friends. The boys had a lot of fun…we would stop by at some point to take photos of the sunset and the surrounding area. We even stopped by a playground last Saturday.
However, after all the fun it is inevitable to not encounter a bit of accident, sometimes big and we as parents are the very first to panic. We see to it that all bikes are in good condition, brakes and all but we can’t control how things would go…unfortunately. Little girl fell off her bike when we were going under the bridge on a rough road. She got bruises on her tummy, left arm and knee while the right arm was totally hurting. That was around 7:40 PM.
We rushed to the hospital and arrived around 8:30PM. It’s overwhelming how many patients could be at the emergency room! The patients come as young as a year-old upto 80-years and above. I told a nurse my observation and he confirmed that it’s true. Either the really young ones or really old are mostly brought to their department. After a check-up, an x-ray, an anesthesia, a cast and another x-ray we were good to go. It took us past 12 midnight to be home.
Morning the next day we went again for a quick check up. We had breakfast at the hospital’s Starbucks before going back home. She’d be in a cast for three weeks…
Wow! Fun time! Well except of course for little girl. 🙁

We have a bike trailer too. I like those as kids go to sleep while biking around the town and going to grocery. Nice one you got in your pictures and the kids sure looks having fun.
Yes a little fall here and there is most likely would happen when we play outside but it is fun though. I don’t like the idea now that kids stays inside the house and played games in front of the computer. Kids had so much energy, talent and skills that we adults had to let loose. I remember my time I don’t have doll we make dolls out of clay hehe. We don’t have cars or truck we make tarak2x hehe. By the way Mirage, I like your photos. ^_^ Thanks for the visit I do appreciate it.
We parents can only do much. I hope she’s OK now and I hope she wasn’t traumatize with the experience and you as well, and go on with cycling. I think it’s a very very nice family activity. (minus the accident of course).
Visiting your from Family Time. 🙂
accidents really do happen, however we put them into safety. sabi nman ng matatanda, “”bayaan mo lang magkagalus, para matuto silang tumayo at lumakas ang buto”. my FIL said that when my son was a toddler and i would always be on his back always picking up on him whenever he’s playing stuff.
(right hand pa pala ni daughter mo ang nagka cast.)

How’s A? 😉
I love biking! But I don’t have a bike. We used to have two but I think they were already sold to the junkshop. I went biking with some strangers two weeks ago and it was fun and tiring. I hope to buy a bike so I dnot have to borrow everytime I feel like biking.
