You could do a lot worse, as far as I'm concerned, than go for a bike ride through the woods with your children and husband.This is exactly what we did at the weekend - our first proper longish bike ride together from our house. We are very lucky to live very close to the woods so its a case of cycling out of the drive and 2 minutes later you are there!
We took water and various munchies and followed our noses through the trees. We had one road to cross and then onto an old railway path that is now a well travelled path between villages.
Son #2 insisted on bringing home this little souvenir, apparently a rabbit, which has seen better days.
Along the way we met lots of walkers and a few other cyclists. I love the way everyone is so friendly, smiling and saying hello. Its very rare for walker, runner or cyclist not to give some sort of greeting. We stopped on the way back for a drink and a bag of crisps at the pub we had passed earlier and then it was on the bikes and back home for tea!
In the end we had cycled about 10 miles. All in all a jolly good way to spend an afternoon.
