Today's utility ride
6.8 miles, to pick up: 4 lbs of sugar at the supermarket, a repaired sandal at the cobbler, a 2 oz sample jar of "haystack" yellow paint, a 2" wide sample paint roller, and a giant color fanpack from the local Benjamin Moore store.
The total time was slightly longer than driving, although it was much quicker to get moving on the bike compared with getting a car going, so the time penalty wasn't much.
I should do this sort of thing more. Too bad not a single store had any sort of bike racks, so I made do with trees.
