Crazy Mom On A Bike: With a Crazy Kid For Company

By Lily William:

I'm Lily. I started touring when I was young(er) and stopped when I decided to get a grown up life... finish college, get a real job, buy a house, and become a mommy. I retired the touring bike, packed up the panniers and moved on with the "American Dream" for a while. Fast forward almost a decade, my baby, 'Ruby' Grace, is 7 years old. We've lived in our house for 6 years. I've been in the same career field for 10 years. The trappings of a proper adult life are not for me. At least not right now.
Then I start to tell Ruby Grace about my bike trips. "Wouldn't it be fun to go on a bike adventure? You wouldn't even have to go to school!" " Oh, yes Mommy."

Off we went to look for a tandem and eventually had one custom built at La Suprema in Tucson.
For Ruby's spring break we decided to go on our first adventure. We are going to ride the Tortilla Flat Loop, one of my first tours back in the day.
