It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.
Disappointed by and rested up from the slow start yesterday, I did better today and did a quick fact-finding errand run for my latest BikePortland column, Nine ways to make this your best spring ever (my first listicle!). Bike: Surly Straggler.
Then the kids and I went to lunch at the Cartlandia food truck pod (food truck pods are so great for dining with kids, dogs, and bikes!) and check out a park as a possible bike camping meeting spot afterwards. Great park with play structure and potties, but no drinking fountain so I think it won’t work, bummer. Bike: Surly Big Dummy.
We had initially planned to go roller skating in the late afternoon, but the kids were worn out so I just did a quick errand in the neighborhood. Bike: All-City Nature Boy Disc.
I think this might be the only time I used three different bikes in one day, neat.
