Country Kids: let’s go for a bike ride

Lets go for a bike ride

Taking advantage of a beautifully sunny Sunday afternoon, we headed to Breakheart Reservation with the boys bikes. The boys wanted to show me a loop around the reservation that I hadn’t fully walked before.

The first part of the walk is one I am very familiar with as it takes us to the beach where we swim during the summer. The boys led the way!

We made our way to the beach along paths covered in pine needles, with the sun streaming through the trees.

The boys were keen to keep going, but I took my time, taking in the view as we walked around the lake.

They urged me on as they wanted to show me a second lake, that in all honesty I hadn’t realised was there! They sped off, until we hit another hill, at which point a push from daddy was welcomed :)

Then we arrived at Silver Lake, another breathtakingly beautiful view. And, as we dropped the bikes so that we could explore, I managed to sneak this photo of the 8yo.

The kids soon found a huge rock and they spent ages climbing, jumping and sliding.

It was a beautiful afternoon; the sun was shining, the kids were in their element and we had a lovely, if somewhat (unexpectedly!) hilly, walk. I certainly got a good work out pushing the stroller, and in fact, I needed the odd push too!

  2. Looks like such a beautiful walk with great views, your children look like they are thoroughly enjoying it too!

    We are hoping to get out in the morning and enjoy the last of the Autumn sunshine!

  3. Ok, I admit it … I was wishing I was walking right behind you (with my kids ahead) as you took us along this wonderful walk and bike ride!

  4. I remember you here in the summer, I think it looks even more stunning now and the bikes are a great way to get around. All in all a wonderful looking family day and very Country Kids, thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you, it’s a great place all year round really, and we all love it :) It’s a great place with the bikes, really safe, the boys loved being able to cycle ahead of us!

    1. Absolutely! We thought the lower swimming lake was amazing, to suddenly come across a second lake was amazing – I should really have looked at a map ages ago :)

  5. Hello there, this is so beautiful and what a lovely time of year to enjoy it-my little one is getting more confident on his bike we will be looking forward to some nice rides next year! #magicmoments

    1. It really is beautiful, very peaceful, but always lots of people enjoying the walks and trails which is really nice x
