Bicycle Built for Two

It's all because I  love too much.  Atleast that's what I think.  I don't like getting left at home and some of the longer hikes require a ride in a front pac.  Some of you might not know or remember, but long before I started blogging, the Dr. told the peeps - and then showed them ENLARGED heart (on  Xray)...No worries, I am forces a pill down my throat that is supposed to slow or stop the enlargement of my loving heart  BOTH morning and night...she used to hide it in bread, but I grew wise to that trick.  Oh - and Doc also said not to let me "overdo it" !?  WHAT? 

I say my heart just grew bigger and bigger because I  love too much.  So no more long long hikes.

Anyways....that brings me to the bicycle built for two...

We found a really snazzy bike basket's called a Snoozer Sporty and it hooks to the handlebars on the front of my peep's bike and the best part is, it has a rain protector!  Yep, if the weather turns bad, I can stay dry and still poke my 'lil head out to see where we're going if I want to.

Ofcourse, Santa had already given me DOGGLES for Christmas, so I have to wear those when we go for our rides on our bicycle built for two.  We go pretty fast down the hills and I don't want the itty bitty no see-ums to get in my pretty 'lil eyes! 

We've been out on several adventures, but yesterday's trip was the longest and best one yet!

So here's the scoop from the beginning.

My peep says "Scrappy, do you want to go biking?"  (key word here GO)

We gather everything we need and load the bike on the car and off we drive!  Once we get there, I get my harness on and mom gets the bike off the car and  puts on her helmet.  It was pretty chilly yet, so my bear blanket came with just in case.

We get all ready and OFF we go!  The start of this trip was a fun steep downhill!  Whee!

We rode for quite awhile and along the way, the birds sang and gophers were whistling...

                                                              GO Scrappy GO

              The sun played games with our shadows....look at this one...we look so funny!

                            And  THIS one turned out to be My Peeps Favorite PIC of the Day!

See our silly shadow?

                                                              Here was the view for me!

  Then My Peep thought I needed a little exercise, so here I am out & about...

C'mon Slowpoke!

 Eventually, I went back in the basket and we headed back to the car.  I decided it was best to just sleep on the way back.

That first Downhill was now a very daunting UPHILL for a certain Peep!  If I had a one of those cameras, I would've taken a picture of her huffing and puffing to get me back up to that car!
