    My wife and I adopted Unglued Jr. when he was 3 months old. He is now 5. The adoption happened very quickly - we had 2 weeks to get everything together (ie set up the nursery, buy a stroller and car seat etc etc) and then three days before he arrived I broke my leg.

    Basically, what I learned is that no matter how prepared you are, you are never properly prepared for the way having a baby changes things. And it doesn't matter - it's a wild ride and you just do you best. Everyone goes through it.

    Three random and unsolicited pieces of advice:

    1. Whomever is home from work with the baby should make a concerted effort to leave the house ,with child in tow, every day, even in the dead of winter, and even if it is just to go to the Starbucks/Tim Hortons etc on the corner for a coffee, otherwise you will go stir crazy within a month!

    2. To the greatest extent possible, make the child fit into your lifestyle, rather than changing your lifestyle to fit the baby. The best example I can think of for this is our very own Garage Monster and Nerdgirl, who take young Theo trail-building, on rides, to races, etc etc.

    3. No matter how great your baby is, there will be times when you just cannot get them to stop crying or calm down, and you will start to melt down yourself. When that happens, put the child somewhere where they are safe (ie crib, exer-saucer - playpen, bouncy chair etc) and go somewhere else in the house where you cannot hear the crying, just for 10 minutes, to calm yourself down. Trust me on this one.


    Anyway, congratulations and good luck. You won't need it though. it's gonna be awesome!

    Make no mistake, our lifestyle has changed a ton! It's a balancing act to be sure but it's SO worthwhile.

    I second Unglued's advice on getting out of the house. We all go out for big walk (cat included) every morning before daycare (where he goes out at least twice more a day, weather permitting) and then we get out after dinner every night as well (tonight was swimming lessons, for instance). He's at the point now that once we get his shoes on, he marches himself right out the door. It makes me smile every time.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    So true. The quantity of riding has decreased dramatically, but the quantity of fun boy time makes it all worth it. When I was home, I made a point of having two excursions per day (even through the winter). One could be in the car, but the other involved fresh air and some kind of exercise for me. It totally kept me sane. I also highly recommend baby wearing! (I started with a Baby K'tan, but there are lots of great options.) It makes hiking possible, gets you in shape faster and the baby loves it! Also highly worth checking out - Ontario Early Years Centres and Programs - they were fantastic.

    Also, sleep deprivation does tough things to a brain - try REALLY hard not to take it out on the baby or each other. Oh - and to your wife - labour is both worse and better than you fear. Don't be afraid to use drugs... Good luck!

    Last week, on a rather cool and damp evening, my 3-yr-old daughter finished her dinner and casually asked "So are we going for a ride tonight?" Her brother immediately seconded the motion, as he always does.

    This week with evening downpours on wet leaves, I only managed to convince them to take a break with some difficulty.

    So yeah, the lifestyle change may be more.. fleeting.. than you expect.

    I can second Unglued suggestions also on behalf of my wife who was at home with our kids for a few years. As some of you know, we have three, a seven year old daughter and four year old twin boys. So getting the troops out could be challenging sometimes. I know now it well as I do it every morning getting them to school.

    My wife and I have always hoped that we can get our kids into the lifestyle that we have adopted. Which for me is cycling. Bringing them out, exposing them to it, and including them once they are old enough is key. My daughter has participated in kids races and would hit the singletrack with me if there was some close by that wasn't so hilly, as she's not strong enough for that quite yet.

    Overall, you will adapt, because you don't have a choice. Making your youngsters part of your healthy lifestyle is key to getting them down that path too as well as you keeping some of the activities you love in your life too.

    While we all go through decreases in activities due to jobs, family, injury or other things that come up, having kids can be embraced as one of the life experiences that eventually enhances what you are already doing. I have friends that are "hockey parents" that have asked us on a couple of occasions being that we have twin boys, "aren't you excited about when they can start hockey?". They are usually surprised by my answer which is obviously more suited to getting the kids into what Mom and Dad do. We will support their choice regardless, but hopefully we can register a "family team" in an eight or 24 hour when the kids are old enough!

    Bottom line...It's all about balance. Enjoy the challenges and fun ahead!
    A bad day on the bike is better than a good day doing anything else...

    I spent 6 years with a kid on my shoulders. Everywhere I went.

    It took about 3 more years to stop talking to the kid that wasn't on my shoulders anymore. I'm sure a lot of people thought I had an "imaginary friend".

    17 years in pictures.

    Kids on the trail... no rant.

    I agree with all that has been said by others. And your lifestyle will some what change as others said.

    Only thing I can say is invest in some good lights. If I didn't I wouldn't be able to get out half the time I do on the bike. And as I have learned even a 20 minute around the Lemoines Point sprint at 10pm is still better then nothing.

    Not to mention i see the ''Rogue trail builder'' Trail Ninja seems to be your partner in crime here when he is not tearing up national parks with bulldozers n chainsaws, this sub forum seems to have some real Canadian ''bad seeds'' floating around in it.....

    I don't know. You sure they have the look right? The half-head shave my son did brought my ex-wife to tears. I was so proud of him.

    on a positive note, since you have become one of the instant MTBR celebrities, do you have more success with ladies?
    Celebrity? Nope.

    This guy is a celebrity.

    That he is.

    By the way at 3:25 you see Will Craig on the Teeter. If one looks closely he nailed riding with a prosthetic arm.

    Muskoka Outfitters fatbike rentals

    Looks like Muskoka Outfitters in Bracebridge has 4 fatbikes as rentals for this winter ( Surly Pugsleys & 907s). I was asked if I would guide some rides on weekends, but I have too much on my plate as it is. One of our local riders has taken that on and I know he will be great at it! MO is also trying to get a group fatbike ride up and running on Wednesday nights throughout the snow season, should be fun! This could make for a great weekend escape/getaway for any citybound cyclists sick of spinning on their trainer

    I figured as much Todd! But then again, maybe it was a cycling faux pas for all I know about spinning

    We have been talking with Hardwood & it looks like there may be a possibility they will open some of their trails to fatbikes. Nothing has been confirmed but there should be a definite answer within the next few weeks

    That would be sweet! Once the season gets rolling I'm going to ask Paul C. of Gravenhurst Nordic Trails (aka Buckwallow) to see if he will let fatbikes onto the skating lane of his xc-ski trails. I know he already allows snowshoers with the caveat that they keep off the set tracks. Same could apply to fatbikes. I'm also a skier and I find the fatbike makes a great compliment. Great ski days are often not ideal for the bike, and vice versa. Best sking is usually late Dec ->Feb and best fatbiking is mid Feb -> early Apr.

    I rode 43km on my CX bike today. It took me over 2.5h, and I was totally wiped near the end. lol

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
