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
