My baby hates cars

We don't own a car and don't want one. Just because we have a baby doesn't mean that we have to buy one. On several occasions I have had to use a car because I am not approved to bike yet, blame the c-section. We needed stuff.  I feel pretty good and a week afterwards I was all pumped to get on the bike but I won't because I don't want to hurt myself and not know it.

We sometimes would walk to the store but I am not allowed to carry anything but my bundle of baby. AHH! So, this has put me in a foul mood.

We are now in May and it is the Bike Challenge. Worse, the Broadway Cycle Highway opened and I just get to watch. In order to inagurate the ride I have forced my other bike people in the house to bike on Broadway. This week Mr. Peyos took a ride on Broadway b…
