We hit a new milestone in our lives recently. Both Jones and Shoo moved up a size in bikes. This means I can no longer throw Shoo’s bike in the trunk of my Civic. It also means that it’s difficult to put both of their bikes in the back of the Pilot. I have a Thule carrier for the Civic that holds three bikes (and took me a half hour + losing 3 fingernails to get on my car yesterday.)
I need to buy a 4 bike carrier and I’d like to get one that fits in the hitch of Pilot. Have you priced those things lately? This is an investment!
So, hit me up with your favorite bike carrier. Is it easy to maneuver around if you keep it on all the time? Is it easy to remove when you don’t want it on? Talk to me, people!
In non-biking news, yesterday I ran a slow 6 mile run. The plan was for a slow and easy 5 mile run, but I made the poor choice of running one of the biggest hills near my house. I was trying to “run” an errand and the store was on the other side. My legs are trashed. Good thing there won’t be hills like that at the halves I’m doing! Now to go run an easy 3 to work out the crap in my legs.
