Have you entered my nut butter giveaway yet?! Homemade nut butter is up for grabs, people!
I share a car with my sister, which can be pretty tricky sometimes. It seems like we always need the car at the same time, so there’s a lot of dropping each other off and then having to wait around. Not fun!
Since I work so close to home (3 miles) and I’ve been working in the mornings, I decided I would vow to ride my bike to work every morning this month. Since my sister is in summer school at the same time I work, it works out well- I don’t have to wait around for her and waste gas!
I hopped on my bike yesterday morning and headed out- only to realize that my tires were low. Like, really low. Like, I had to get off my bike and push it two miles to work low. I was a hot sweaty mess by the time I rolled in to work and vowed never to ride again.
Thank god for dads that can fix anything- my bike is as good as new today!
I got to work in about a third of the time it took me to get there yesterday. Ah, nothing better than the feeling of nice full tires! I really want this to become a habit over the summer. I’ve worked out a nice little schedule. I’m out of the house by 8, work at 8:30, off at 11:30, working out at 11:31 (SO nice to work at a gym) and on my way home an hour later!
I love you, bike! You need a name. Squashmobile?
Confession- I used to never wear a helmet when I ride my bike! After reading Kelly’s story, though, I am hereby committing to wear one every time I ride. Sure, I look like a doofus, but it sure beats brain damage!
I hate wearing helmets because I have a freaky big head. This is my dad’s helmet and it fits me perfectly, if that gives you any clue as to how large my head is.
I really want to buy a cute helmet, but I don’t think they make any to fit my melon!
Or do they? I think I need this…
I bought this backpack a few weeks ago at Ross for 6 bucks! I normally use it as a gym bag, but it makes quite the handy backpack for running errands via bicycle It fits five pounds of peanut flour too, just in case you stop at TJ’s and score the last few bags. Just saying.
Do you wear a helmet when you ride a bike? You should!
