I took the Expedition out today without Betzi to get some climbing in. The low gears on the Expedition are better for climbing hills while still breaking in the new hips. Slow and steady was the plan for the day. I'm good with moderate hills but I found out that the steep grades, no matter how short, are still not a good idea for right now.
I forgot how much fun it is to ride the he Expedition without the added weight of a trailer and a dog. In the past almost every one of my rides on the Expedition has been with Betzi in tow. Without her extra weight the Expedition can really move.
