Dave and I biked together a couple times as well. The photos here are from our trip to the produce market for local fruit. I often get questions about how I get things like that home. Question no more! The second photo is of our bikes. You should be able to see the rubbermaid container bungee corded onto the top of my baskets. This comes in handy for more than fruit. This is how I take my recycling to the recycle facility as well. When all else fails, get the bungee!
Now that I've done my 20 mile ride, I'm feeling pretty unstoppable. Really, that's the farthest I would ever need to go to run an errand in town, which means I can do most anything without the need of a car... well, except refilling the 2-5 gallon water jugs from Jacob's Well. There's a weight issue there...
This past month also featured an addition to my lovely bike - fenders! After missing a much anticipated talk because of rain earlier in the day (aka when I headed to campus for the talk, I was gone only 15 minutes before I was completely covered in mud, gave up, and biked back home), Dave fitted my bike for some fancy fender action. No more mud splatter for this gal!
So these days, I've feeling sassier than ever. Wherever will I ride to next?
