Christmas Day Bike Ride!

Christmas in Houston today was a cloudy 55° – great for a bike ride to put all our new bike stuff to good use. And we weren’t the only ones. We saw a ton of people and families out in the park riding, walking, running, and playing pickup games of soccer and football with friends and family. It was fantastic. Christmas in Syracuse consists of shoveling or snowplowing your driveway, scraping off your car, and staying inside where it’s warm. Of course, our closest friends and family are there and we miss them incredibly so. But, since we were staying in Texas this year for the holidays, this was the best way to spend it!

Annie's bike. Specialized Tricross. The thing strapped to her downtube is "The Stick", which is a muscle roller she used for when her knee hurts.
