I did before my knees started screaming at me. Got clipless pedals? They're awesome. You should get some and do a video series of learning to use them.

I'm trolling. Clipless pedals are awesome, but there's a catch. You need to have your health insurance deductible paid up before you start using them. The learning curve tends to be steep and painful if you're not especially coordinated.

its all fun and games till your speeding down hill and no brakes or a seat.

my cousin Jimmy got a brand new Huffy for his birthday. His dad dint tighten the bolt holding the gooseneck into the frame.

we all were jumping our bikes on a makeshift wood ramp

until Jimmy went higher in the air than any of us.. and his bike went one direction and him holding them ape hangers the other.

I had to hand it to him, he never let go of them handlebars :LMAO: :LMAO: :LMAO:

My daughter is still mad at me lol

Poor girl. Legs like rubber. Bike riding is a great way to help your legs stay strengthened for those long walks I. The turkey woods. When’s the last time you went swimming? I went to the lake last year and swam for a hour. Holy cow was that rough. I ain’t 25 anymore that’s fosho

I exercise my Brittanys with my old Cannondale. I have a snap mounted post (Walkydog) that has a spring loaded leash that sits at right angle to the bike under my seat. I harness the dogs one at a time to the short lead and let them pull my tenth of a ton through the neighborhood. They can't control direction, etc., and go where I point the bike. Gets them in shape for bird seasons. I also use it hunting turkeys in areas that don't allow vehicle traffic. Here it is snipe hunting:
