Errands on your bike...

Today was a day of errands. I had an appointment with an oral surgeon (wisdom teeth extraction) in Huntington Beach, the closest one that my dentist would refer to. It was just a consult, so I could ride back. When I was finished there, I decided to stop by the REI in Huntington to see if they had the TS-2 truing stand I ordered a month ago. They did! Just arrived. Luckily, I was bringing the Xtracycle so I could schlep it back without a problem.

On the way back, I stopped by Trader Joes to pick up some groceries. It balanced out the otherside of the bike nicely. I always love the look on people's faces as I'm riding down the street with a fully loaded bike. It's a mix of awe, admiration and horror..

Total mileage for the errands was 27 miles.

Did you leave the truing stand on the bike when you were in Trader Joe's? I always kind of worry when I do multiple shopping errands on SuperVato that someone will steal stuff out of the FreeLoader slings... paranoia mostly, but theft does happen.
