Somewhat bike related, I realize.

Here I am pedaling a 4 seater bike with my wife, mother in law, and son who just turned one on a bike path in Coronado. Of course, I was the only one pedaling. You'd be amazed how hard it is to climb a .1 percent grade with a single speed steel quad. Had a great time, though.

Not on you. Your son. He has a great big grin 'cause he's havin' fun. What happened to your smile? Hey that t-shirt will have a good deal more meaning in another few months :O) Actually in more ways than one if you think about it :O)

Love Coronado by the way. Christine and I plan on returning to the Hotel Del soon. I didn't see any of those four-wheelers though. Where do they rent them?

They rent the "tandem Surreys" at the Hotel Del, but we stayed down the road at Loews, where they rent them, too. Did some riding in my Milano, too. Got to ride the beach cruiser actually *on the beach*. That was difficult.

Have fun.

Is that a bike-related shirt or a future statement about your son? Gunny...about all I have now is bike-related T-shirts. All my others wore out. I'm guessing others who have been cycling for a while have the same type of T-shirt collection and many cheap water bottles with bike advertising on them.

I probably have a hundred bike related t shirts. Can't even recall wearing this one -- I pack for a 5 day vacation in about 2 minutes; just what I happened to grab that wasn't too smelly. You know how it goes... ;-)

It is sort of funny, though.
