A Bike Ride, a Burley trailer, and a new Nishiki mixte frame
Wow, this week went fast. Felkerino and I are off to join our D.C. Randonneurs friends for a little bike ride. This is one where reflective gear and lights are required.
Before we go, though, I would like to share that we are putting the Bridgestone MB-4 to work. This morning, Felkerino hitched the Burley trailer to it and rode off to retrieve a 1980 Nishiki mixte frame that someone gave us.
I was so proud of Felkerino for using the bike and the trailer. Managing these kinds of errands with a bicycle (as opposed to a car) is empowering!
For those wondering about the frame, the Nishiki is going to be a “project bike.” This is exactly what we need at our house. Another bike project. I like giving the dining room bike shop my business, though, especially when the outcome is a bike for me made out of free spare parts.
Bye bye for now, and have a great Friday! It’s beautiful out there.
