As a supporter of The Alley Project (a nice wrap-up on Young Space), I was invited to last night's exhibit preview of Shifting Gears: A Cyclical History of Badger Bicycling. There's a lot of cycling history here, and Wisconsin is the home of many custom bicycle makers.
This all-wooden bicycle (even the chain!) never made it into production. Heh.
I have been shifting gears, as well. It was nice enough for a bike ride today, but I opted for a walk instead. I am using an app called Map My Walk, and so far:
- 1.37 miles on Nov. 2nd; in the dark/evening, with Rusty
- 0.11 mile on Nov. 3rd; checking out the distance to the mailbox at work
- 1.08 miles on Nov. 3rd; to the library (there was a book due)
- 2.62 miles on Nov. 4th; the credit union and on to Walgreen's
I almost turned around today when I was finished with business at the credit union, but soldiered on. The weather, while not as sunny as I'd hoped, is amazing. I find that I am much more willing to walk when I have a destination or purpose!
This was at lunch time yesterday; as of last night the first clue in the March Through Time mystery KAL is complete!
