Had to give up the bike for now

The wife and I had to start using our cars ,once again, for the commute into work. I'm absolutely bummed. My wife's grandma babysits our kids and takes them to school which allows the two us to ride our bikes to work. Well, grandma had to go into the hospital for surgery and won't be able to think about babysitting for at least 6 weeks. I worried about grandma but I still miss riding everyday to work.

sorry to hear about grandma and your commute.

I remember posts from people that use a burley trailer to take their kids to school or daycare, could that be an option for you?

School starts at 9:00 so I have to drop the kids off at school and then rush to work. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back to riding in several weeks - crossing my finigers
