It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.
TGIF! I’m so grateful my kids’ teachers are working so hard to connect and organize classes while we’re all staying home, but I’m still getting the hang of getting the kids online in the right places at the right time. I’m sure it’ll get easier once their schedules settle into place. And it’s nice being home with them and getting to see a bit of what they’re working on. Today I took my 13-year old out to look for the new Minecraft Earth spotted cow tappable between his two classes. He found two of them!
It felt almost normal, doing something not tied to running an essential errand. Very on brand for 30 Days of Biking :) I hope to practice the ride to middle school this weekend, so even though I’m skipping days left and right I like knowing I’ve got something planned.
On this day in 2017 we were in Santa Barbara for the day, having gone to Los Angeles (where my father and brother live) for the week.
Our spring break used to fall in April so we usually traveled during 30 Days of Biking, thus all the out-of-town flashback posts, giving the impression we’re adventurous jet setters.
I was born in Santa Barbara and attended college at UCSB so I’d biked there both as a kid and a young adult and it was really fun to pedal around with my own kids. This was also our first trip anywhere with them big enough to ride their own rental bikes (versus me carrying them with a rental cargo bike) so that was especially cool.
