Errand taking a heavy load of unwanted items to Next Adventure for trade-in. I generally manage to leave close to empty-handed, if only because I know what they like and I'm able to provide it.
On my ride there I saw lot after lot where derelict buildings had been torn down and construction was taking place. Portland is growing, and growing. I shudder to think what that will mean for bicycle transportation in town, as more people more here and demand their "right to drive".
On the bright side, it was a lovely ride, warmer than yesterday and sunny. Cherry blossoms, daffodils and tulips colored the route and made me smile.
