Alpharetta Greenway

The girls and I went back to the Greenway yesterday. There was a section that we hadn't ridden yet and I wanted to see if they were good for a pretty long ride.

We started at Kimball Bridge Road and headed south. Sophie led, but Iz was staying like 20 feet back from her and kept drifting further back. Sophie wasn't going too fast, Iz was just nervous that she'd stop suddenly or swerve or something. It wasn't an unwarranted fear either. Sophie's riding a lot better, but she's still a little squirrelly. That said, she was climbing well and made a bunch of hills that I didn't expected her to make.

 Riding the Greenway

We rode south to the Big Creek trails, took a break...

 Taking a Break

...and headed back. Since her crash, Sophie really wants to ride in the middle of the trail, right up against the yellow line. She unconsciously drifts over to it. If I remind her, she moves over and ends up back at the middle 10 seconds later.

I think we rode for about 2 hours. Not sure how many miles. It seemed like 8 or 9, maybe more. Sophie was a little tired, but not too bad. I bet we could do the entire thing. We'll have to try that soon.
