I've been pondering how I should track my progress in the following months (better than fixating on the seat and kickstand problem). I could track mileage, weight-loss, total number of trips, sense of health...so many options! I personally don't like scale fixation but it's hard to beat the cold hard facts that numbers on a scale depict and for some reason I tend to think readers would find it easy to relate to. I also like the idea of mileage tracking but I was concerned that would mean another expense in the way of a computer, however I have been the fortunate recipient of a gift- A bike computer from a kind bike enthusiast I met on Facebook! How nice is that? And his only request for payment..."do something good for someone else"... thank you John, I certainly will! I've felt so cut off from any sense of community since we moved to this area almost a year ago, it feels nice to "belong" in some way.
I had my mum over to my house today and she excitedly joined me in viewing all of the Yuba videos on YouTube. We especially enjoyed the transportation of 400lb of bananas on the back of a blue Mundo, pretty spectacular!
Hopefully my next post will include pictures of my zesty new bike (I opted for the citrus orange) but until then if you have any input as to what you would like to see me track for the next 12 months please let me know! I love the comments and appreciate the community spirit I have found as a soon to be cargo-cyclist.
