Cycle Chic Sundays Santa Monica

I was so excited when Eva of Evoluer & Cycle Chic Sundays contacted me about helping to organize a ride through Santa Monica. I have been a bit too tired to plan a social ride all on my own for LA Cycle Chic due to the family situation, and Heather and Caryl have been busy too. This was perfect.

It was a great time cruising through the streets of Santa Monica. I hadn't seen Christa, Caryl and Heather in ages and I was pleased to meet Eva and her friends even though I felt like a bit of an old lady. We made stops at Peets Coffee & Tea and Urth Cafe where I ordered the most delicious vegan chocolate cake in LA. It is so delicious it is evil.

Miss S had a great time and I think I have mastered the new child seat that I used on the Townie. On the previous two attempts I made the mistake of dismounting the bike before she did and it kid of tipped. This time was smooth boarding. Yay, Bobike Jr. seat. I was also pleased that I survived the length of the ride. With my ever increasing figure I get tired sooner than I usually do, but the rides pace was relaxed and I was fine and woke up on Monday feeling fantastic. More Bikes Please!

  4. Thanks for the compliment on my Panda. That is only my second one ever! I get nervous about trying to ride and do anything else with one hand.
