30 Days of Biking – Week 3 Recap

30 Days of Biking Recap: Week 1Week 2

Three cheers for another stellar week of cycling! During this third week of 30DaysOfBiking, I really found my “biking for transportation groove”. Instead of thinking “Oh, I should drop those donations off on my bike”, I just instinctively started loading up the donations on my bike. It felt so good to realize I was again defaulting to the bike regardless of my cargo load!

Here are my highlights from this third week of #30DaysOfBiking from my remote office location in North Florida:

– Family bike camp with Joyride Bicycle Collective in the local National Forest! The weather was perfect and the company was primo. So many kids and SO many bikes!
– All the opportunities for spring time foraging, like loquats and blackberries.
– Riding with my kiddo to the local National Park Service office across town to volunteer in the library.
