Errandonnee 6 through 12

Today I had a few errands to take care of...
March 6th

Category: Wild Card
The water at my apartment was off due to a water main break on the street. We suspected they'd have the water turned back on by evening when we'd need showers and water to make dinner, wash dishes, etc... (and thankfully, it WAS back on in the evening) but we couldn't flush the toilet. Off to find some facilities.

No water for you!

Pharmacy (personal care)
I had a prescription to drop off. I like the bike racks here; sometimes I find a number of shopping carts corralled here. Grrr. Bike racks are not a cart corral, people!

The Greenfront Inn
Non-store errand

we needed lunch and a fried fish sandwich sounded great.

In the "You Carried WHAT On Your Bike?" category, I needed to drop off BikeMS posters and brochures at both Kindred and Thick Bikes. This large mailing tube transported the posters. I'm very thankful both shops obliged and hung them.

We scored pepperoni rolls!

Wild Card:
Tag-O-Rama game!
The object of the game, played by a handful of Pittsburgh cyclists is essentially a photo-scavenger hunt on bikes.
#1 – Find the tag and get a picture of your bike in the same location (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose – you’ve been Bruced.
#2 – Take the tag to a new location, shoot a photo with your bike in the picture, and post it

We rode out to McKees Rocks to pickup this photo tag:

Later, and a few miles away, we set this tag.
