Gainfully unemployed, I had plenty of time this morning to hunt Bike to Work Day feed stations. One popular station on the Chester Creek Trail was stocked with bacon, courtesy of the Spenard Roadhouse; cinnamon rolls from Great Harvest, and vouchers for a free beer at the Midnight Sun brewery this evening. Bacon in the morning and beer in the evening and bikes all day. Bikes every day. Bike everywhere, every day.
Lael receives her bacon. Lael saves her bacon for later. I wrapped my bacon around a cinnamon roll and ate it immediately.
Backpacks, old Rockhoppers and high visibility clothing all made a good showing. Two matching riders breezed by on a 5 speed Schwinn Twinn on C Street, while a late 80’s Sierra with a 16 inch tall stem took the bus. A carbon Ridley cross bike with tubular tires shared a resting spot with an old Bridgestone MB-1. The purple Pugsley with the smooth tires and the “racing” handlebars confused at least two people.
