Although the amount of energy it takes to fuel those two, both for riding and growing, must be astonishing! I can hardly keep my 6 year old out of the hypoglycemic range when he has a day full of playing. I guess it takes a lot of carbo-loading!

Thanks for this moving portrait of a better life for us all!!

I’m currently in Austin on a cross-country bike ride and reading your blog, I can just picture their smiling faces and enthusiasm for everything. Thanks for such a great article.

I’ve commuted by bicycle for more than 15 years to HP — on three continents; Singapore, France, and of course in the Bay Area. Not only is biking to work a lot cheaper and more righteous than driving a car, it is a heck of a lot more fun. HP provides showers, covered bike parking, a locker room, soap, etc at all of the places I’ve worked — that type of employer commitment is almost as inspiring as the twins 😉

To Twila, spend a bit of time to get outfitted for the bike to work and you’ll be glad you did. ie, fenders if you live in rain country, a decent set of bike shoes, shorts, jersey, panniers, lights & my favorite a construction worker class 3 high viability vest. It’s not that you “need” this stuff, but if you have it you’ll find the ride to work and arriving clean/dry/warm/safely makes you want to do it more not less.

Here I thought I was really something biking 8 to 16 miles to work every day back in my 20s. Wow! Now I am inspired to get out the old bike and start again!
