Sky Ride in Southampton 2011

The Sky ride is a free cycling event where riders of all ages cycled the traffic-free 7.3km route through the city at their own pace. The event was sponsored by Sky and British Cycling, in partnership with Southampton City Council. The aim is to get one million more Britons cycling regularly by the end of 2013.
The Sky ride is happening in different parts of the country & 14,000 people joined the Sky ride Southampton on 14th August. It was a whole day event, they even organized other activities and entertainment for everyone. 

 This year, nagdecide si Papa Erick na sumali, at syempre hindi pwedeng hindi kasama si Poj! It was such a gloriously sunny day and the boys had a lot of fun. Papa Erick decided to only do the morning route knowing that more than that would be too much for little Poj.

The day has inspired us to plan a cycling day out one weekend in the New Forest here in Hampshire. It'll be a cycling/picnic day out and we can't wait. We are just hoping for a sunny weekend in September to make it happen. And to all my friends who knows I can't cycle, may solusyon kami dyan - ang pagkabit ng trailer buggy! Papahuli ba naman ako? lol =)

  1. If I was there, I'd probably one of them and for sure I had a lot of fun.

    Look at little Poj, seryosong-seryoso, nakakatuwa yung chair niya sa bike. Buti half day lang sila kundi panigurado magwawala yan sa pagod at init.

    Ang cute naman nung trailer buggy mo! mag-practice ka na kasi para when the day comes, ikaw naman mag-angkas kay Poj! hehehe!

  2. you're not alone sis, di rin ako marunong magbike. =) cute ng chair ni poj, lovely pictures.

  3. ay nag cute mag-amang nagbabike.. galing! super like..

  4. ang cute ni poj talaga. Ang cute ng picture nila ni papa E (at naki-papa E na ako.hehe..)I'm sure nag enjoy ang mag daddy. Konting panahon na lang and poj will ride his own bike.

    Aww.. I know how to ride a bike but I am not good at it. Laging parang beginners lang.hehe..

  5. ay nakakatuwa naman, kasama talaga baby mo. ang cute ng pagkalagay ng upuan sa likod ng bike!

  6. ang cute po talga ng baby mo. hehe

  7. ay grabe sa kacute-an! I want one of that too! First, kailangan muna magkabike ako haha. How's that, Kristeta? You bought the bike first then the chair for Poj? O magkakasama na? Good luck naman for me makahanap nyan dito sa bundok. hehe.
