It’s April! That means 30 Days of Biking and biking every day and hopefully blogging about it each day.
I’ve missed my first day of blogging, but not yet a day of riding–phew. Yesterday I only biked a mile to pick up school lunches. That was on my cargo bike with Pixie in the basket. No photos.
Today I finished the job from day 20 and toted Kath’s new patio chairs home for her. Pro tip: Lay chairs flat so as not to encourage hop-ons.
Then I went grocery shopping with my cargo bike. I meant to go at 6am, but totally forgot come morning so I went at 6pm. I’ve avoided the grocery store in the evening for over a year for fear of it being crowded. Today it wasn’t at all crowded, but it was quite surreal–some of the directional aisle markers have come back (they were all removed several weeks ago–I’m assuming because restrictions were relaxed), but they’re pointing the opposite directions from before. It’s really, really weird to be routed oppositely. Of course there were still the obligatory couple of people wandering the wrong way.
I came out of the grocery store to find a very fancy bike parked next to me and it made me feel frumpy.
