News from the West side

Well, I have a little news to share. I have a new job that I'll be starting in a few weeks. I'm going from the energy industry to the bicycle industry. I'm going to be working for a little company that makes little bikes for little people. You may have heard of them. Strider Sports.

My excitement is overwhelming at this point. I love the idea of putting more kids on bikes and at a younger age. I completely believe in the brand and the product. Both of my kids have used or are currently riding Striders. The oldest, 4, is now on a peddle bike. He had no issues at all going from the Strider to the peddle bike. No training wheels and he had so much confidence already. My 2 year old rolls around everywhere.

It's always interesting when I'm talking to people and they ask how I get my kids to ride their bikes so much. I ask them how not too. Maybe it's because I love bikes and I try to ride as much as possible or maybe it's just that bikes are so fun it's nearly impossible not to want to ride. Both of the kids wake up in the morning and instantly want to go outside and ride. For some reason, it seems so natural to me.

That's all from me for now. I'll update you on more once I start. Maybe I'll have some ride reports between now and then, who knows.

I'm extremely excited to be starting a different chapter in my life doing something I completely believe in and have so much passion for. Until then... later.
