Bicycling in Buenos Aires, week 1

January 30, 2012
I bought a bicycle last Monday and rode for over an hour for 4 of the next 5 days. This is the ground I covered last week (shown relative to the whole city).

Number of rides: 5
Total time: 4.5 hours
Total distance: 70 km (44 mi)


Friday I took a break, Saturday I did the purple route. Yesterday (Sunday) I tied a cardboard box to the rear rack and went on a groceries run, to a larger store than we usually shop at, past walking distance. (I need to buy a plastic crate and secure it much more firmly to do that again.)

Today it was raining all day. Hopefully it'll be sunny again tomorrow.

Also, Steph's thinking of buying a bicycle now, too! (She was initially concerned about the traffic, but it's really no worse than Boston, and there are beautiful parks everywhere and partitioned bike lanes along many of the major roads.)
