30 Days of Biking

BlackbirdThe 30 Days of Biking challenge started today, April 1st. Last year’s challenge jumpstarted my cycling season because we’d had terrible cold and snows, but this year’s winter was mild beyond belief and most weeks I rode repeatedly. So cycling’s already a habit. But I like the concept of a 30-day challenge, even if it only adds one or two extra trips a week on the bike to my current schedule.

One of the challenge’s goals is to encourage bicycling by getting participants to share their adventures online. On a commute last week I realized there are so many things I look forward to, especially in the morning–the spring blooms, the misty ponds, kids walking to school–and I decided those treats would be the subject of my 30 Days posts. Every day will bring a different image and a short description. Keeping the posts brief should make it easier on both you and me. That’s the plan, anyway.

With that, here’s day one: brunch at Blackbird, a favorite coffee shop for the Spokeds. The owner is a cyclist and very friendly to fellow riders. Often the fence out front is cluttered with bikes. This morning it was reserved for us. On the ride home, Mr. Spoked discovered the Cafe cruiser’s cup holder is perfectly sized for what he calls a “big-ass latte.”

Day one down, 29 more to go.
