I had a number of errands to run today, but since moving into town in September, I’ve been able to re-arrange my life to make using a car optional.
Before work this morning I went to the post office to pick up a package that they would not leave at my door. Then I stopped by the bank before continuing on to work.
After work, I had a massage appointment, then picked up dinner before heading home. Those new panniers came in quite handy for hauling things today.
While running afternoon errands on Bardstown Road, I saw this Salsa Vaya parked. Time and I have discussed using a bike like this for a gravel bike. I don’t need a specific bike for gravel, but it is a nice bike.
What was the package I picked up this morning? It was an Acorn Handlebar Bag.
With this, I’ll have easy access to a few things while riding the bike. I’ve been envious of others pulling out their cameras on rides. I had to stop and fumble around in my trunk bag. That shouldn’t be an issue now.
I have another bike project in the works for the LHT. Stay tuned, I’ll be posting about it next week.
