While my wife and daughters were busy preparing our Thanksgiving feast, me and my son ( the twelve year old) slipped out for a quick ride. Since we were in a hurry we drove to the our starting point, the southern part of the Trinity Trails. I think this pre-feast ride will be our new tradition. After a short ride we returned home and had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. It wasn't long after that someone broke out the Charlie Brown Christmas CD. In this house the Christmas season begins when you're finished eating Thanksgiving dinner.
Courtnee-Globe Experience: Courtnee, aka Sweet Georgia Brown, is the lucky recipient of a free Specialized Globe Live 2 Mixte. Courtnee was contacted by the Globe Project Manager from Specialized and asked to blog for them. I've been following Courtnee's original blog for a while now. She's a nice young lady riding her bike in an area where that's a rarity. If you can, please show her some support by following her new Globe blog.
