When last we “spoke” five days ago (Are you biking during shelter-in-place? Us, not so much) I wasn’t sure I was up for biking more than the bare minimum (groceries every couple weeks), but I hoped that writing about it would inspire me to get out daily. No promises, but I think it worked. The kids and I definitely need to get outdoors more; we’re playing quite a bit of foursquare on the sidewalk right outside, but it’s not enough. So hopefully we can take some small yet adventurous rides for 30 Days of Biking.
Today we biked to my 10-year old’s elementary school to play foursquare in a marked court. There were several other families around, keeping their distance from one another, so that was a pleasant sight.
We took a circuitous route home and discovered a bike tower near school!
Since it’s the 10th year of 30 Days of Biking, I thought it’d be fun to highlight a past day-in-common each time I post. Today I’m flashing back to the first day of our first 30 Days of Biking 10 years ago when the kids were 3 and 1. We took a 1-mile ride to the grocery store. My rear kid normally held the groceries for me, but he was full up with a banana in one hand and a leafy branch in the other so I tucked the groceries in my ring sling and wore them like a baby, ha.
Today’s miles: 5.3
Total April miles: 5.3
