At the end of the school vacation week back in April, I began commuting to school via bike. This is not a new thing as all the kids know Ms. H rides her bike and I often hear, "I saw you riding your bike over the weekend..." from various kids.
My weekly 20 mile rides are pretty much through a combination of traffic and along familiar bike paths. Soon I plan to branch out to different bike paths and try some group rides. I have these long poetic thoughts I mean to record when I'm out riding, but then life gets in the way and I figure it's enough that I rode.
Fundraising has been slow as I have been pretty busy. One thing I have discovered is that people like my little ocotopi guys that I crochet. I'm going to write up the pattern, have someone test it for me to see if it can be followed and then put it up on places like ravelry, craftsy and a few other sites as a fundraiser. I'll also ask a couple of local yarn stores to carry it as well for me as a fundraiser and maybe see if they'll let me run a workshop.
Over the next few days I'm going to design a couple of flyers I can hang up around town.
Perhaps I can wax poetic after the next ride, which should be a 30 miler. Right now I just need some coffee to get started after I feed the cats. Why they don't understand sleeping in on a Sunday morning, I just can't comprehend.
