Even though the weather is getting cooler for many of us, there are stillÂ a fewÂ weeks of good biking weather ahead of us and lots of reasons to use pedal power!
I am not talking about spandex-clad, super-calfÂ â€œcyclists” here,Â butÂ just regular “bike people” as in – pedal to the post office, the corner store, that playdate in the park!
I got a bike this year after not having one for many years and I really love it. Yes, you need a helmet and yes, the helmet hair sometimes creates a stir (but everyone wants to be famous these days, right? and sometimes when I know my hair will be particularly bad, or I want to cut the line,Â I just leave my helmet on at the post office, and people, sensing some kind of road accident impairment on my part, are very very nice to meÂ )Â and you will be cutting carbon emissions, decreasing obesity and setting a great example for our kids (“learned behaviors” is a fancy phrase that really just means “blame your parents” so let’s get blamed for some good stuff).
ForÂ this week’s themed nomination as we celebrate the amazing bicycle, soÂ let’s take a peek around Etsy for team member’s items to get us all moving, like this great bag from DustDesignCo (check out their awesome Etsy av):
