Jason caught me with a weird expression but Lotus required some nursing stops on the curb a couple times, this one was even before we started…

Lined up at the start. There was very loud, awesome drum music playing-a real pep rally.

Too many stops and starts for me to manage the cargo bike, so I took Jason’s bike and he did the big job.

The camera battery died early on. Does that always happen? Luckily Jason had his iPod so we were able to get a few more lower quality pics.

One of the course pit stops and another mama-Lotus curb snuggle. There were three stops and each one had treats. The kids loved it!

Isaac says, “Why are they celebrating? They didn’t do anything.” That’s right, Isaac, you did an amazing job keeping up with us! His legs were sore by the end.
