After my early morning run to Heller’s, my third day of acting errandonneuring involved some shopping and some dining.
The first order of business was a post-work run up to Rodman’s in Friendship Heights to pick up a few missing pieces of sprite’s birthday present, as well as some provisions for a dinner and movie party that takes place tonight.
The rush hour traffic on Wisconsin Ave NW is thick, and not particularly friendly to cyclists:
My bike outside of Rodman’s (which is a great place to find imported food products, as well as wine, beer, and other yummy things):
The provisions: tea and chocolates for sprite, mustard for the house larder, and some yummy beers for me (including two from Epic Brewing: 825 State Porter and Brainless Imperial IPA):
Stopped by HTO on the way back home to price some locking wheel skewers for my mountain bike (it may soon see more use as a daily commuter with less-than-reliable parking). Didn’t buy, but nice to see what’s out there:
Riding back down Wisconsin Ave, back toward downtown, with far less traffic (and less sunlight):
Much heavier traffic on Mass Ave, just past Observatory Circle. This was painful:
Total errandonee mileage to date: 26.0
Total controls: 5 (Work Commute, Breakfast/Lunch, Dinner, Grocery Store, Bike Shop)
