Isaac's Cycling Merit Badge

Here are the requirements for the Cycling Merit Badge.

After giving Isaac instruction on how to switch the gears on Cathi's road bike and giving him a few practice tries in the culdesac, we went on our first 10 mile ride together.

Here's the log of his rides:

6/13/2015 - 10 miles - "This kinda hurts my back".  We already had the seat as low as we could.  The frame is a bit big for him, but he was able to stand up without the top tube hitting him in the groin.  But he does need to bend over a little more just to reach the handlebars.  Not overly so.  He also needs to get used to the saddle.  It already has a gel pad cover.

6/17/15 - 11 miles - Nice bike trail ride all the way up to West Point.  He needs eye protection from gnats!
