This year I attempted both an Errandonnee by bike and one on two feet. I was successful in both, although it involved flexibility in interpretation of the already-broad categories, and […]
I used to grumble about Bike to Work Day. “People don’t need a special day to ride their bikes. Every day you work could be bike to work day,” I would […]
Hey winter, stop bossing me around. It’s time for a March challenge designed for the utility cyclist and transportation runner with errands to do, even during cold winter days– the Errandonnee!
Four days and change remain for those on a quest to complete the 2015 Errandonnee. On March 17, the Errandonnee is over and you can cry into green beers and […]
Before I announce the ultimate list of errandonneurs, I’m featuring @RetroTwenty‘s (Ted) excellent guest post of his Errandonnee. @RetroTwenty is a rider out of Massachusetts, a state with four Errandonnee finishers (good job, Massachusetts!). As you will see in his post, Ted is fairly adept at securing bike parking, no […]
We’re well past due for an Errandonnee roundup, wouldn’t you agree?
Winter got you down? Craving the warmth of spring days? Feel down no more and hop on that bike. It’s time for a March challenge designed for the utility cyclist with lots of errands to do, even in winter– the Errandonnee! The tweet version of The Errandonnee is: Errandonnee: Complete […]
Not having much familiarity with family biking (except for my own family bicycling tales growing up), I wanted to see how others made transportation cycling with kids work. Through last year’s Errandonnee I caught a glimpse into how Family Ride out in Seattle, Washington, does it. Filled with stories that make […]
As my blog staff compiles results, I’m taking a few posts to share some Errandonnee participants’ adventures who chose to share their stories, not through Twitter or blogs, but through their control card or narratives. This week features BikeDC friend and errandeur Eric P., who tells a lively story of […]
I received so many great blog entries about people’s Errandonnees that I had to do one more blog roundup. Soon I’ll be back to announce the finishers and honorable mentions, but while I homologate results, check out these fine errandeur write-ups.
Because I loved them so. As always, thank you errandeur tweeps.
I have been so inspired by all of the riding, errandeuring, blogging, and tweeting going on this past almost-fortnight (I like to refer to things like a major tennis tournament). While I have not been writing as much these days, I have been immersed in perusing as much Errandonnee activity […]
Alright then. All photos are courtesy of the errandeur who originally tweeted it. Thanks, tweeps!
When I was little, my sisters and I used to play a game we invented called “Sister.” Our variation of playing house, it entailed us making formal visits to each other’s bedrooms, speaking in what we imagined were elegant tones, and frequently employing the term “sister” as we conversed about […]
Did it make a sound? Who can say? Just in case it doesn’t, I know several people who have dedicated time not only to errandeuring, but to writing about their experiences as well. I am quite impressed with how quickly people are putting together their posts. They’re faster than a […]
