I’m so proud of myself. I was puttering about Saturday morning before the rest of the clan rolled downstairs. Of the many tasks on my list, I had to mail a package and pick up milk from the local store. (In our home, we go through easily one gallon/day.) With the temperature a brisk 40 degrees, but the skies moderately clear, I quickly snapped the grocery panniers on the Cannondale and “rode” my errands.
I waved to a neighbor as I rode by, and had a nice leisurely jaunt through Lewisberry. I estimate I reduced my carbon footprint by about one pint of 87 octane. I was hoping to get in a ride later in the day, but my task list runneth over.
