What to say, what to say. Do you recognize that beautiful machine above? Looks like our Yuba Mundo. Rides just like it too. Trekking bars. GoGetter bags. Clipless pedals. Rim brakes. Clean.
Brent picked up our friend Mike’s Yuba this afternoon. He and his son enjoyed the bike this spring but circumstances arose that prevent them from cycling at this time. He knew we were shopping for a second bike. While I have my mind set on an electric assist, this scenario will give us more flexibility in our schedules and more time in our days immediately. It is the average American equivalent of having two cars.
Brent can transport the children to school and continue straight to work with all his personal gear thrown in the mix. I will be able go about my errands and know that in a pinch or during illness, Brent can do pickups, significant grocery runs, pizza take out, or anything else I demand of his day. And I demand a lot.
Brent is elated to be on even footing with me. He feels chauvinistic riding solo with the rest of the party on the Yuba. We are balancing our family dynamic. In the name of gender equality, uh, right?
