Other fantastic news: since I still haven't been able to find the Yepp Mini keys, I decided to track down the company--Gazelle Cycle Imports. A quick email and phone call and within an hour or so, a new set of keys was in the mail. How fantastic! I am hoping that they come in time to take off the seat for our big trip but if not, at least I know that I can rest a sandwich on the empty Yepp Mini and stuff my face as I ride. Bonus! Thank you, Lindsay!
I've been getting some lovely messages from lovely bicyclists these days. Keep 'em coming! I love hearing what you guys are up to, too. Thank you for all the support and questions and ideas. They say that it takes 30 days of repetitive actions to form a habit. This bicycling thing is quickly becoming habitual for us. Each day I walk out the back door instead of the front, I am creating a healthier habit for myself, my family, and the environment. It makes me feel stronger every time I push through a difficult ride, both in my body and in my convictions. I really like that feeling and I hope to help others get there too.
