30 Days of Biking 2018: Day One

It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.

Today started with an unexpected trip to deliver some friends to a bus stop. I mistook how close to home the bus stop was and wore my pajamas. Which is sweetly fitting for 30 Days of Biking as it’s not uncommon for participants to ride up and down the street in their pajamas at 11:59pm to get a day’s ride in. Bike: Surly Straggler.

The main event of the day was Kidical Mass and it was so fun! Pixie and I led the ride of 150 humans and 4 dogs. 3.2 miles from Overlook Park to Arbor Lodge Park and an Easter egg hunt at the end. Bike: Surly Big Dummy.

And finally I biked to the train station. We were lucky with the weather earlier in the day with just a bit of drizzle, but it was properly raining by my 5pm trip. The silver lining is that I think Pixie finally figured out how to tuck her head into her backpack. Bike: All-City Nature Boy Disc.

I like keeping track of miles for 30 Days of Biking so I’ll try to Strava everything to make it easier than drawing out my routes on Google maps like in the old days.

Dunno if I’ll assign a theme this year, but maybe something will present itself by the end of the month.

Today’s miles: 31.24
Total April miles: 31.24
