Big day today–my bigger bike passenger turned seven! All I was interested in was route testing for the upcoming Critical Lass ride and I figured I could sneak it in somehow. Scratch that, at first all I was interested in was this box spring around the corner from our house, mocking me. The box spring fiasco still haunts me. I’ll have to do something about that some day, but there was no box spring toting today.
We started the day with a Mighty-O doughnut and I noticed the other two bikes at the rack were locked with Kryptonite Fahgettaboudits. I have a bigger Kryptonite with cable, but the kids need locks and I wouldn’t mind an even better one. I like the Abus Bordo–and the thought of matching keys.
Next up, we played with friends at Greenwood Park for a while and since this was coincidentally the starting point for that Critical Lass ride I suggested we go check out Sky Nursery for a cookie and Venus flytrap. Lucky for me, the kids were amenable. So we heading north on the Interurban Trail with its great art installations.
And the Linden cycle track:
The Venus flytrap fit perfectly in my Portland Design Works Bar-ista:
With bike locks on the mind I noticed the silly lock job on this Micargi:
Then we dumped the bike at home for a ride on the bus to the Sounder train and a mile-long walk to the mall. It was neat to be on the other end of the Interurban Trail.
Mr. Family Ride met us at dinner with the car, by the way, so it was a much less involved trip back home. Happy day!
