Actually, it was a "mystery tour" and I definitely never imagined it would end the way it did.
Luckily (?) I was halfway down the road before I thought about my friend who just spent a week in intensive care after an accident in which his bike landed on him while fortunately his son was thrown off with barely a scratch. This was after I already let my 12yo dd have a ride too, only wearing tshirt shorts and jandals.
But yeah, our rides ended safely and it was exhilarating.
