The school year is underway. Our current practice is to walk up the hill to school then pick up the kids via xtracycle. The hill is steep enough and the walk short enough that riding up isn’t warranted if you don’t have somewhere to go right after…no need to get that sweaty at 9am. It may have been a trick of the light but I think I saw more walkers than usual. That’s something to be optimistic about!
We celebrated the first day with a ride through Ravenna Park to Cowen Park. Aside from the usual collections of street kids and sleeping junkies we had a great time.
There’s a good year ahead, I can tell.
