Today we embarked on our first cycle ride with our 10 and 8 year old grandchildren. Okay, it was a modest 7 mile trip along the Grand Union Canal around Brentford and Hanwell, but the sun was shining and it was a fun day for all of us.
The children found out how locks worked and provided a helping hand as a boat navigated through. They understood the significance of the historical buildings along the waterway and amazed by I K Brunel’s unique three bridges.
At least we knew the requirements for increased calorie intake even on a short ride. So, a picnic and another food stop ensured all energy levels were well topped up!
So, we hope this will be the beginning of many more adventures with grandparentonabike.
