Errandonneuring …

Today I did another leg of the errandonneuring challenge, it was off to the grocery store, Errand #7. Riding there,  there was a light misty rain, so  I felt like a kindred spirit with my co-competitors in the northern hemisphere, who are undergoing a sufferfest in rain and snow to complete this challenge, as one of the aims is to get out biking in winter. Luckily the temp was a mild 20C and the rain was not heavy enough to wet me through so it was a mere token gesture to them but it is the thought that counts.

So this is Errand #7: Grocery Store.When I got to the centre I took a wrong turn in the carpark and stumbled across this enormous bank of bike racks underneath a ramp and out of sight of the shops in the centre …IMG_5272It was completely empty, my bike is only there for the photo opportunity, I then proceeded to the other racks which are directly outside the shops and much more secure and convenient. I learnt (yet again) that large corporations waste money on useless bike infrastructure because they do not consult with people who actually ride bikes.

Total miles: 4

    Good for you for trying this challenge. I may get out the bike today as it’s above freezing, but then it’s dropping for the next few days. I’m not sure I could complete the errandonneuring program however…

    I’m not sure if I’ll complete it either Annie, but decided to give it a go and I am really enjoying blogging about it too so that’s a bonus. I hope your weather keeps improving, I couldn’t stand that sort of cold that you get.

      Hi, Vicki, if you don’t complete just send me what you have. You have at minimum earned an Errandonnee honorable mention! 🙂

        Hi MG, thanks for encouraging me, I am afraid I am a DNF ( did not finish) and was going to email you that, but if submitting my scorecard will get me an honourable mention then I’ll send it in. I’ve really enjoyed reading the errandonneuring blogs.

  3. MG says:

    Yes yes yes! Do send it to me. And I’m glad you’ve liked the blog writeups. I know I have!
