30 Days of Biking - Week One

2016 marks my third year of participating in 30 Days of Biking.  To date, over 8,000 people have pledged to ride a bike every day this month and help generate funding for World Bicycle Relief.

What I enjoy most about this "community of joyful cyclists" is the low key approach to cycling.  It doesn't revolve around a certain amount of miles or types of rides.  There are no requirements for participating.  Even if a person is unable to ride a day or two, there's no element of failure.  Just get back on your bike and pick up where you left off.   

Here's where I've been pedaling: 

Day One - The timing couldn't have been any better with the Waukee Ice Cream Shop opening on the first day.  I was their first customer of the season! Surprised?  I didn't think so!

Day Two - The WIND!!!  Luckily the Clive Greenbelt Trail is a handy place to hide.

Day Three - Found a pencil on my errand ride around town. 

Day Four - This ride included a bike break along the Skunk River.  Read about it here. 

Day Five - Errands and stop at the local hardware store. 

Day Six - Made a donation to the free library outside a nearby church.  

Day Seven - Rode the Raccoon River Valley Trail while the wind slept in.  

Day Eight - Another ride involving books.  This was a trip to the Waukee Public Library.  

Day Nine - Back out on the Raccoon River Valley trail.  

Day Ten - A trip to the post office.

It's not too late to participate.  Help 30 Days of Biking reach their goal of 10,000 pledges and celebrate with some ice cream.  

Happy Riding!
