Trail: Waukee city streets, sidewalks and urban trail
Time: 11:00 AM
I decided to “kill two birds with one bike ride” and include running errands while going on a bike ride around town. Little did I know I’d see a couple of goofy birds along the way.
The route included city streets, sidewalks and a portion of the Waukee urban trail.
My handlebar bag worked great for holding a Netflix DVD and library books.
It was a quiet morning and although portions of my ride were in the streets, I only encountered a couple of cars. Always keep an eye out for traffic!
Using my bike bike to run errands instead of my car was not only fun but environmentally friendly. I need to figure out a way to lug home groceries on my bike since the grocery store is the place I seem to visit most often.
I first swung by the post office to drop off a Netflix DVD. Then it was over to the library.
It’s the holiday season and the sightings around town proved it. First I encountered an enormous snow man. Thankfully we haven’t had enough snow yet to make one that big!
At the Waukee Public Library a purple Christmas tree caught my eye as I returned a book. How pretty! I browsed around the library a bit before finishing my ride.
On the way back home I saw a couple of goofy Turkeys relaxing having survived Thanksgiving.
Every year the “Cup Lady” decorates her chain link fence with a holiday message. I decided to swing past her house to see if she had it completed. She did. A Merry Christmas to you too!
I returned home and had a pumpkin pie smoothie before getting started on my next to-do items for the day.
