Bike Stuff

Husband and I had a date night after work last week.  We had a nice, slow supper at Estia, the greek restaurant on Spring Garden Road, and then headed home for some snuggling on the couch with Dexter Morgan, haha.  Anyway, we'd both bussed it to work that day because it had been pouring rain when we got up, so after our meal, we strolled down to the bus stop to await our ride.  That's when I noticed this:

In case you don't know, and I didn't as it's the first time I've ever seen such a thing, this is a bicycle repair post!  There are a bunch of appropriate tools to fix your bike if you are downtown and get stuck with a busted something or other, plus a pump if you've got a flat!  How cool is that?  Is Halifax suddenly and finally getting more bike friendly?

Another hint that it is, is that a couple weeks ago, they extended the bike lanes on Windsor Street, to go almost all the way from one end of it to another!  You know what this means?  It means my ride to and from work is 75% in a bike lane!  And THAT means I get to worry just a little bit less while I'm cycling.  Mind you, it seems as though it's going to take a few slower people a while to figure out they can't park in the bike lane, but hey, baby steps.

Keep it up little city!  The more people we've got traveling on two tires instead of four, the better!

Till next time!
