Totcycle | Family Biking

Tots on bikes, kids as cargo, family cycling, and other high-occupancy velo goodness.

Not caring how much our bikes weigh since 2008.

« Heading Home »

After commuting 6 miles each way from Ballard to the University of Washington for over a week, this is the first photo I've been able to take of my ride. It's quite dim in the AM, and completely dark when I ride home. Yesterday I headed home early. This is my favorite part of my commute - where the Burke Gilman Trail curves under both the Fremont and Aurora Bridges, past tugs and barges, sculls and sailboats. When I have kids aboard, we often stop here to watch things go by. There's a tasty patch of blackberries nearby, and a great picnic spot too, complete with gaggles of geese. This is the stuff you notice when you're not trapped in a car, and these are the stops along the way that are effortless by bike. I love my ride home.

Did you clean it before you snapped this? I don't know Seattle routes that well but in PDX my bike is nothing but a leafy mushy mess by the time I get to work! Even w/ the fenders!
