30 Days of Biking–Day 7

7 Apr

I finished out the first week of 30 Days of Biking with a ride to Sprouts market. If I take a direct route, the store is less than 7 miles round trip. It’s sort of ridiculous that I don’t do it more often on my bike. Obviously one reason, the main reason, is panniers don’t hold much in the way of groceries. Still, for just a few items it’s the way to go. Besides today Mark went with me so we had 4 panniers to carry stuff.

One of the best things about an event like 30 Days of Biking is I end up biking more frequently than normal. Maybe not more miles, but more rides. Since I must ride at least once a day, it forces me to figure out ways to incorporate a ride into my day. I don’t know about you, but I don’t do training or fitness rides every day. I do however, go out to run errands, etc., some of which I can do on my bike.

Sundays are my favorite day to ride, likely yours too. Fewer people on the roads is always welcome and in these parts – especially during church hours – the roads are pretty empty. We had planned a Jones ride today, but with the windy and overall yuck weather – looks like it’s just going to be the grocery store run for us today.

Only down side of no vehicles is there’s no one to trip the light so must go onto the crosswalk…



A lovely old building on the campus of UCO.



My lovely, not so old *steel is real* bike.
