This afternoon I picked up a few things at the grocery store. That's not so unusual, but today I did it on my new bike, bearing home tomatoes, garlic, cream cheese, a salmon fillet and Gerber daisies in a basket attached to the handle-bars. The route between home and store is an easy one that takes me through a pretty downtown village and along the edge of a golf course. There are bike lanes the whole way. Best of all, the wind is warm and trees cast cool puddles for me to ride through.
