Today was supposed to be an Issaquah adventure by bike–bike downtown and bring the bike aboard the bus and use bike to explore the city after our dentist appointments. But I woke up feeling sick with a cold and bagged the whole plan. I commandeered my car and we drove over and came straight home afterwards. No salmon hatchery, no train playground, no lunch out.
Today’s ride was just a quick trip to the grocery store for soup. Not much of a ride, but I’m glad it was a proper ride and not just a run around the block for the sake of 30 Days of Biking. I just brought the small kid with me and used the big kid’s seat for carrying the grocery bag. It’s certainly easier putting one full bag in the seat instead of dividing things into two bags and cramming them in the baskets. I seem to be doing a lot of biking with just the one little passenger lately. Oh, and I figured out how to lengthen the straps of the rear seat. Shame on me for doubting something of Dutch design to be more style than substance. It was just a bit too design-y for me to easily notice the hidden button.
