Dear Anne and Tim,
What’s the deal with your blog? We used to get all kinds of information about riding as a family from Carfreedays, but you haven’t updated your blog since May. What gives? Are you all done? Did you run out of things to say? Left the country?
Your faithful readers
Dear Imaginary Reader (assuming you’re still there),
It’s not you, it’s us.
The truth is, after 4 years of riding and writing, we got a little bored of ourselves. Who wants to hear about riding to the grocery store one more time? Or going on a carfree date? We’ve been riding as we always have, we just stopped documenting all of it.
The problem with the blah is that even when we did something a little more adventurous, we were far enough away from the habit of blogging, we didn’t make the effort to write.
- We sold our car back in February (we really are car free now) and ride everywhere. That probably deserved a mention.
- We spent an awesome weekend with Totcycle‘s Kim and Julian in Portland last June (4 Bromptons,4 adults, Amtrak and 0 children). Kid free bike event of the year. And we still didn’t bother to write one word about it.
- Tim has made some fun upgrades to the bikes that he’d like to share with you (can you say bamboo and shellac attack?)
- and he still has the kid bike series to finish
We’re coming up on our four-year blogging anniversary and we’ve realized we just aren’t ready to walk away from it.
So stay tuned, we promise we’ll do better. We don’t know what better is just yet, but we feel like we could still share a few things that might make your riding lives more enjoyable (or entertaining)
Anne and Tim
