My latest delivery of sewn bills and crowns for Hat People in southern Oregon was a trip that saw me taking a table-top ironing board home.
I used bungee cords to secure the board on the top of my bicycle rack and carefully pedaled, avoiding potential bumps that might jostle the load. During my trip, I felt profoundly grateful for Ashland’s investment in bicycle infrastructure, for its well-maintained bicycle lanes and bike-friendly residential streets.
And it’s empowering to overcome transportation challenges that auto-reliant households don’t face. Routine rides take on potential for adventure.
