I wasn't sure I'd be up for 30 Days of Biking this year -- and heading out on a rainy day on the first day of April didn't boost my enthusiasm -- but we're into the first week of my annual challenge and it's actually been enjoyable.
It's crazy to think back to a year ago, when we were under a shelter at home order, with so much uncertainty surrounding Covid-19. The boys were schooling at home, Mike was working in the dining room, and I kept my rides local, within a six mile bubble. Really, not a lot has changed in the last year -- I'm still masking up for my ride, and staying local -- but the anxiety of April 2020 has eased a bit. (Just a bit.)
Let's give this another go. 30 Days of Biking... Year 8.
