First school run.
Loaded up the 2 boys and the school bags and headed up to school this morning. Average speed for the trip used to be around 6 or 7 km/h (it is a long climb up about a 1 to 2% grade to get to the school gate). This morning the average speed was 14km/h! The kids could not believe how fast we were going and the average speed would have been higher if we did not have to slow down for people on the path. Fully loaded up for a school run the bike weight is just under 190kg (418 pounds for all those on the old scale).
