We went out for a nice post-holiday bike ride today. It was overcast and cold, but we bundled up and stayed relatively warm and dry. Stops included Nana’s to feed her puppies (we’re pupsitting while she’s out of town), the coffee shop for pastries and hot cocoa, and the grocery store for lunch fixings. It was a fun time.
This was also the maiden voyage of our new Civia Loring. This one is our personal bike. We had a Loring on loan for review earlier this year and liked it so much we vowed to eventually add one to the stable as our primary cargo/grocery hauler. Besides being a capable workhorse, it’s also a fun and surprisingly nimble bike to ride unloaded. Many thanks to Rick at Gold Country Cyclery for getting us all set-up!
