    I was reading Benji’s column this month on short rides. He started talking about parenthood and how it affects your riding, and I expected to be able to nod sagely in agreement. And then this…

    “Two or three times a week I’d be spending long days out on the trails”

    😯

    How on Earth did you manage that? My wife was very understanding of me going out for one day at the weekend when we had our first born, but THREE???!! Never mind the job that gives me the time to do this, where do I get a wife that will allow me to do this whilst she stays at home with the little ‘uns?

    I suppose doing it for a job helps?

    My other half is pretty understanding – I was off winter climbing within weeks of our first two being born (both January babies) she knows I get cranky if I’m cooped up for too long, and need letting out for a good long slog/run/ride like a small child or a dog.

    bokonon, mine too, but I reckon I’d be pushing my luck with 2 long rides a week never mind 3.

    as long as you give your oh the equivalent “time off” I don’t see it’s an issue.

    Not enough hours in the days in the week, it seems…… 😕

    Exactly. If I had 3 long rides a week and my missus had the equivalent “time out” I can’t imagine we’d spend any time together as a family…
    …never mind the fact I’d have to get a job that wasn’t 5 days a week 😆

    I guess he is/was a freelance.
