Maggie and I completed our 12th and final errand this morning. Yay us! We covered 10 of 11 errand categories for a total of 61.3 miles. The challenge was great fun, and encouraged me to ride more than I would have otherwise.
Category – library/book reading
Okay, this is a bit of a stretch: It’s sunny and temperate enough to make lingering outside pleasant, so I stopped just north of Chelsea Piers and read for 20 minutes (Chang-Rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea, very good so far). Since book and camera live on the same device, here’s my best shot at photographic evidence.
Observation – Hudson River Park is less celebrated than Central Park, yet no less delightful. I love the landscaping, the thoughtful use of steel/concrete/wood, the endlessly fascinating (to me) interface between city and nature. Oh, and the beautiful, well-maintained bike path, of course.
Distance – 3.4 miles
You did it — congratulations to you and Maggie! (On an aesthetic note, love the way the red helmet, the blue Mini O, and Maggie’s black frame all complement each other!)
Thank you for the inspiration, Brommie! And for the compliment; we basic black Bs have to accessorize with color.
