1st Errandonnee

Another challenge has been put forth by Mary from Chasing Mailboxes: the Errandonnee.
Basically, you have to do 12 errands which are chosen from 11 categories by bike between March 7-19, and then document your errand with a picture and something that you learned or observed during your trip.

I started this years challenge with a trip to the grocery store to pick up some tortillas for Saturday's dinner.

Category: Grocery Store
Distance: 2.34 miles

No Smoking
Observation 1: When there is nothing to lock your bike to at a store you tend to shop really fast.

Observation 2: Tortillas are the perfect shape to put in a frame bag.


  1. Have fun with the challenge. I looked over the link you provided. Very interesting! Although living in the woods like I do, it would be very difficult for me.

    1. I was going to say that you just need to find a bunch of errands to do at once in the nearest town, but I'm finding that difficult to do living just outside of Duluth. I couldn't imagine trying to do that in Solon Springs (or whichever town is closest to you).

    2. Darin, if you have feedback on what Errandonnee categories might work in an area where everything is more spread out and/or rural, let me know... I'd like to make it something customizable for many areas, not just urban.
