The worst part of this is that I can't even ride a short distance to go to the store. It also means I can't feasibly walk somewhere carrying something other than my baby. 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 because he was made to get my pain pill refill. He biked from down by Lake Union up to Capitol Hill. I have no idea how he did it without going over some bridge. He was nice and took a picture for me just to rub it in.
So, Baby Peyos has an appointment and I thought it would be fun to have the other kid bike on the cycletrack. We took the bus with the bike and then let our kid make her way and obey the laws of traffic.
And she is off.... She was excited and oddly enough we felt safe allowing her to do it.
On the way home we took the light rail and I managed to lift the bike for my kid:

The bike looked new and had a lot missing. See how they locked it? They just locked part of the frame. The handle bars, wheels, and seat were missing. So sad.
Finally, we made our way through the Columbia City Farmers market and lookie lookie, an Edgerunner:
