I got out on the road almost everyday this week as I'm trying to prepare for April. I did miss one day because of a morning snow shower and an ill timed nap on Jack's part. But when we did get to ride it was lovely weather and we enjoyed ourselves.
We went to the grocery store yesterday, where the Yuba had some company while it waited for us. I didn't plan on getting much, just some fruit and a drink, but we ended up getting donuts too. Jack loves the little grocery carts as he always likes to be helpful, I think it's pretty adorable, but we get mixed reviews from our fellow shoppers, some of whom seem to have forgotten the pleasures of being in the moment.
Afterwards we went to the playground where Jack had a fun time running around, met some new friends and tired himself out. It really was lovely weather, hard to believe it was snowing just the day before! When I look at the picture below I find myself smiling. This bike really has changed my life and we are still very much at the beginning of our journey.
With the 30 days of Biking just around the corner I'm glad the weather is looking a little nicer, honestly I don't mind the rain because I now know the weather protector works really well, but I don't like the wind when its head on, as it makes it hard for me to get forward momentum.
When we left the park I headed over to Kyle's work as I hoped
we would be able to meet him, he had already left and so we headed
home. As we crossed an intersection I saw a bike towing a kids trailer
in front of us, they were about 2 city blocks ahead and seemed to be
enjoying a slow ride. My competitive nature got the better of me and I
decided to catch up with them, which I'm pleased to report I was able to
do in no time at all. That marks the first time I've passed anything on my bike, so I guess that's progress! I think cycling everyday in April will be a really positive experience, not only will it help speed up my progress but it will help me get in the habit of daily cycling, which is my ultimate goal.
