Biking to PhinneyWood Summer Streets

I would not have wanted to put this in the car:

But no problem tossing his painted little self (and this is only halfway through our bubble and paint area adventure) on the bike.

This afternoon we biked up to Phinney Ridge for SDOT’s Summer Streets (“Walk.Bike.Shop.Breathe.Play”). I considered hauling the balance bikes up there, but I’m glad I didn’t because there weren’t a lot of kids riding bikes around on the closed streets. Instead I bungeed an umbrella stroller and Ergo to the bike and we walked the length of the event. We also transported a bunch of cans for Seattle’s Largest Canned Food Pyramid.

The event was fun and we ran into lots of friends (all of whom bike with kids, I’m just realizing after the fact!), but the coolest thing that happened was while riding home up 45th, just moments after admiring a parked mamafiets with a black Yepp front seat, I heard “Are you Madi?” It turns out the owner of the bike is a friend of a friend who had just heard a description of my bike.
