Fast Friday: Try, Learn, Do.

Hello Friends! How is life going? Are you busy doing your favorite things? Or are you out there trying or learning something new? I’m doing a little of both. I somehow spent 3 weekends in a row in the Twin Cities, and while I didn’t do everything I wanted, I did do some pretty great things!

Nice Ride Katie Looking ForwardI finally tried out Nice Ride! My friends and I had a few issues getting enough bikes for all of us at once…but it was a great first trial. I brought a wristlet for my phone and wallet, because I wasn’t sure where a bag would go. However, all the bikes have a bungee on the top that could have easily fit a bigger bag. Next time, we picnic!

Kale Sriracha Casear Salad

While going out is great, sometimes Pinterest is better. This Kale Sriracha Caesar Salad was amazing! We changed the recipe a bit (skip the following ingredients: olive oil, mayo, anchovy) and add grilled chicken instead!

Bike Maintenance Triathlon BeginnerWhile running is at the top of my brain, I am trying to get more comfortable with my bike. Getting the proper tire pressure has been a lesson in self reliance, and patience.

Vitamin C Graduation SongFinally, I had a free trial of Sirius XM last weekend and when Vitamin C’s Graduation Song came on I got a little sad. The song was released in 1999, I was in 6th grade, and now I’m 26! Its amazing how time flies!

Have you done something fun lately? Anything on your summer bucket list?

  1. Nice Ride looks really fun, I always saw people biking around downtown but never got a chance to do it while living there so like you I will have to travel and do it! That’s good to know there is a bungee on top- maybe go to the farmers market or something?!

    On the summer bucketlist is Camping!

    • My idea of a perfect nice ride would be to stop at the whole foods in uptown, grab snacks/lunch/drinks, park by calhoun and go around all three!

  2. Is Nice Ride the Twin Cities’ bike share program? That is one thing I miss about living in D.C. – I used Capital Bike Share all the time, especially during the summer. I love seeing it available in more and more cities across the U.S. I keep hoping that one day it’ll make it’s way down south to Florida.

    • Nice Ride is the Twin Cities program!! I wanted to try New York’s when I was there in May, but I was scared without knowing the trails/rules. It was kind of expensive for how little time we used it for, but I would love to do an all day adventure with them!
