It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.
Huge and early day today. My friend Andrew is in town for the Ladd’s 500 (tomorrow) so we biked the equivalent of 1/3 of a Ladd’s 500 today to warm up, starting with PDX Coffee Outside at Lower Macleay Park in the cold drizzle. Then New Seasons Market, breakfast at Vita Cafe, Community Cycling Center, after which I picked up a piece of glass in my rear tire and walked my flat two blocks to Everybody’s Bike Rentals & Tours (a great little shop!), Microcosm Publishing, and Universal Cycles. Bike: Surly Straggler.
Later I found the most unimproved of all the unimproved roadways in my neighborhood heading to another New Seasons Market. I will avoid this block with the kids in the future for sure. Bike: All-City Nature Boy Disc.

Ahhh no more flats! Someone once told me that colored tires are more flat prone. I lined one of my tires with a flat resistant strip. Works well rides a bit wonky.
