Last night I took advantage of the warmest temperatures yet this spring to ride home along the river, which I haven't done for a while. Since I don't mind going slow and enjoying the scenery, I don't mind sharing the path with joggers and perambulators. I enjoyed watching the sailboats, out for what must be one of the first voyages of the season, and generally enjoying the last evening light.
At the store, I just couldn't resist a mini-bouquet of daffodils, which tucked nicely in my basket- I love this opening, designed for inserting fish, but which I use for sunglasses, keys, and now flowers.
Today with highs in the low 50's, I saw a TON of riders out, lots of pent up demand.
I had the wonderful experience of going to a job site meeting at which I was not the only person to arrive by bike! The jobsite is in Beacon Hill, very close to the T and in a neighborhood utterly without parking. The structural engineer took 25 minutes to find a parking spot, but it only took me 10 minutes to get from my desk to the job. The other person to arrive by bike was the interior decorator (!) who I actually knew was a bike person because I run into her every once in a while at events. I had worked with her years ago, and recommended her to the client based on her style and way of working more than the bike thing, but it was awfully fun not to be the only person there coming and going by bike. I wished I had gotten a photo- next time I will!
Edited - I just looked at the weather and it's going to be almost 70 tomorrow!!!!!! I can't wait!
