One Planet Living: Day 28: 2017
I've just started going to the local gym again this week. It's only 1 km away but I've driven there and back twice already this week. Like many, these little trips by car don't save much time, it's just the energy of getting there and organising your cycle gear. The result really unnecessary carbon emissions.
So this morning I got motivated and cycled to a yoga class. Which was lovely, it started at 8.30 am so was a pretty civilised time and the weather was beautiful. Then on a roll Tom and I cycled to St Lukes to get his hair cut for the next term at school. We took the Roy Clements Walkway to avoid the traffic and it is probably just as quick by bike. We need some more cycle racks though couldn't find any on the walkway side so tied up to a down pipe. It has been exciting seeing all the new cycle networks and infrastructure growing in Auckland over the last year. Next test will be cycling to Wednesday's 6.15am Spin class! Will need to track down my lights. Seems like summers only just started and already it is getting dark in the mornings.
