It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.
Pixie and I stopped to admire this new stop sign after dropping off the kids. It stops cross traffic on our school route and since it’s new, it’s adorned with attention-grabbing orange flags. I like how some stop signs are offset to get them out from behind visibility-blocking foliage. Bike: Surly Big Dummy.
Before I could get out to run errands I got a call from school that my 5th grader had fallen and hit his head so I pedaled over to pick him up. He’s totally fine, but he wanted to come home so we left his bike at school and he got to watch me do yard work and housework for the bulk of the day. Bike: Surly Big Dummy.
Later on I grabbed the other kid and the first kid’s bike. It was pretty hot out (84) so we took the most direct route possible (though that meant a couple blocks of sidewalk along two arterials) and rode fast…per the kid’s request.
My kid has been working on riding no handed lately and discovered it’s easier when going faster. (I think it’s hard no matter what.) Bike: Surly Big Dummy.
