LGRAB: Summer Games Entry - Social Cycling: Go on a bike date with a friend
My friend, Karen, and I have been having a lot of fun bike-pooling to work. We each travel half-way on our own, then meet up in a central parking lot and take the rest of the way together. Working just a block away from each other in downtown Salt Lake City, it works out perfectly!
Oh, and how cute is Karen's bike? It's an Electra Cruiser. What's more she sewed her basket lining herself with perfectly coordinating fabric. (She's a bike friend AND a crafty friend. I'm lucky!)
Know what's even cooler about our bike-pooling? Our matching helmets.
It's the Pink Helmet Bicycle Brigade, Ding Dong! (And yes, Karen was the one who owned it first. I have got to give her props, yo!)
So after work today, instead of biking straight home, we headed to a nearby outdoor mall for a fun outing. Karen is trying to be good and is on a spending freeze, but I had a Birthday coupon at Anthropologie. Although, I left empty handed, I still had fun being outside on a gorgeous day.
Basically, Karen and I were able to combine function (commuting) and fun (shopping)--all by bicycle!
