I was supposed to stay home and get stuff done, but it was much too pretty a day. So while the kids and Mr. Family Ride were at the beach (by car since he’s too tall for my cargo bike and doesn’t have his own…yet) I snuck out on my road bike to route test for the upcoming CycloFemme ride with Critical Lass and Kidical Mass. We’ll start at Flo Ware Park on May 11th–save the date!
It feels weird adding dogs to the monthly tally when the kids weren’t with me, but the tiny furry pup was hanging out in the street so I made friends with him and tried to lure him to the sidewalk while a car slowly drove by. I guess it’s a sign of a good group ride route when small dogs feel safe to hang out in the middle of the road. His owner was gardening at the opposite corner and called him over after the car went by so I didn’t leave him stranded. And the bottom dog was tied to the bike rack when I exited the coffee shop. He looked a little skittish so I chatted with him a bit before approaching my bike. I’d like to think only friendly dogs get tied to bike racks, but he didn’t look so friendly up close.
I wanted to take a picture of my bike and a pretty tree on the way home, but it’s not so easily done without a kickstand. I guess this works.
